The Marble Falls Education Foundation handed out over $122,000 in grant money to 36 different projects across the Marble Falls school district in early April. The money was awarded through the foundation’s annual Grants 4 Great Ideas program

The foundation has given more than $531,000 to teachers with creative ideas that boost classroom engagement since the program’s creation in 2018.

“Grants 4 Great Ideas challenges teachers to think big to come up with innovative ways to teach and creative ways to engage their students and push them toward achieving their fullest potential,” said foundation Executive Director Jeanna Jette. “It is inspiring to see how deeply educators care about the success and well-being of their students.”
