Round Rock ISD has awarded $1.9 million in Innovative School Grants to 34 District campuses, challenging the winning schools to explore, enrich or design an exemplary model of innovation to serve students and the community.
The grants, ranging from $7,500 to 100,000, align with Goal 1 of the RRISD Strategic Plan, which states “we will implement, enhance and support innovative teachings and learning models.” Funded through 2016-2017 budget allocations, the grants were awarded through an internal application and interview process.
