LEEF strives to ensure that every teacher in Leander ISD has the resources needed to do great things for their students through teaching grants, professional development scholarships and recognition.
- Innovative Teaching Excellence Grants support LISD educators committed to going beyond the standard curriculum and putting great ideas into action. The grants are open to all LISD employees in good standing. Since the 2007-08 school year, LEEF has awarded more than $112,000 in grants ranging from $500 to $5,000 to LISD teachers and staff across the district, benefiting more than 40,000 students.
- Teacher Recognition Campaign provides a tangible symbol of appreciation for the tremendous job LISD teachers do all year to prepare students for success in life. Families are invited to make a donation to LEEF in their teacher’s name, and in return, the Foundation provides each teacher with a certificate of recognition and goodie bag. In May of 2013, LEEF had the opportunity to recognize 231 LISD teachers and staff at 33 campuses!
