10/10/2019

As part of the ongoing effort to create opportunities for all students to be empowered, to grow and to learn, Seguin ISD pursues grant funding to help support this mission.

 

Recently, the district was awarded a School Climate Transformation Grant. Administered by the U.S. Department of Education, the grant funds initiatives for schools to enhance the learning, climate and behavioral outcomes for all students.

 

The grant is for $750,000 a year for five years, totaling $3.75 million.

 

“I am excited that Seguin ISD is the recipient of the School Climate Transformation Grant. This program will create opportunities for the district to enhance our proactive approach to support our students districtwide. In addition to staffing and training, the grant will ultimately allow us to implement a layered system to improve our overall student climate through engagement, safety and environment, said Dr. Matthew Gutierrez, Seguin ISD Superintendent.

 

"I, along with the Seguin ISD board of trustees, express our gratitude to Congressman Vicente Gonzalez for writing a letter of support during the grant application process. We are proud of his continued support of Seguin ISD.”

 

Additionally, the district was awarded two years of funding for the COPS Office School Violence Prevention Program through the U.S. Department of Justice. This will allow the district to use the funds to improve schools and school grounds through evidence-based school safety programs. This grant is for $238,114 over a two-year award period.
