The SAISD Foundation is committed to funding opportunities for employees of SAISD to implement innovative ideas to increase student success. Over the past ten years, tens of thousands of students have benefited directly from the implementation of Innovative Grants across our schools and many successful grants have been replicated in other schools through this process. Results from these grants have included increased grades, test scores, attendance, parental involvement, and student engagement.  Please click here for a listing of past grant winners.  See our STEM, Fine Arts and Enrichment pages for featured grants and to ignite your innovation.
