SKI Plano 2017
Our 20th annual SKI Plano event on Saturday, January 30, 2016 was a HUGE success! Thank you to all you attended and our sponsors!
Proceeds from SKI Plano will support the 2017 Grants to Educators program. The Plano ISD Education Foundation provides more than 100 grants on an annual basis that support innovative projects which increase students’ academic performance. Projects must demonstrate outcomes that either close the achievement gaps for underserved populations and /or prepare all students to be productive citizens in a society and college-ready. A qualified project costs between $1,000 and $3000 and is not supported through tax-supported district resources.
The Grants to Educators program addresses the lack of funds for innovation in the classroom. Educators are often used to the confines of their curriculum and this program encourages them to think creatively, using originality and invention to engage activities that are “outside the box” of traditional learning methods. The Foundation projects to award $140,000 in 2017.
