Selection of Grant Recipients:

Instructional approaches or projects that benefit groups of students are eligible for support. Grants may fund instructional and classroom materials, or an activity or material which supports higher levels of student academic achievement. Grants will not be awarded for salaries, staff travel or food. Costs and items that may be available through district, state or federal funding will not be considered.
Manor ISD has identified three priority goals for programs:
