The Independence School District Foundation believes that directly supporting teachers is one of the best ways to help students achieve and succeed. The ISD Foundation provides grants to ISD classrooms K-12 and also awards grants to new teachers.
New Teacher Grant
As a new teacher directly out of college or a teacher coming to the Independence School District with only one year of experience, you are eligible to receive some financial help in setting up your classroom. We are aware that teachers spend their own money for special materials and supplies. We want to ease that burden!
ISDF classroom grants fund multiple teacher-inspired projects every year, enriching our schools and offering extraordinary opportunities to learn ‘outside the box.’ Every grant we make is made possible by donations from individual, business and organizational donors–we rely 100% on contributed income to provide this essential funding!
