Welcome to the Because We Care Campaign
Together we will transform lives. That is the impact this campaign has! The 2017 EMS ISD Employee Campaign will run from September 11, 2017 through October 30, 2017. Get your enrollment form here: EMSEF-we-care-2017-email-card-print
Every dollar raised will be used for employee scholarships or innovative teaching grants. Imagine the impact that we would have if everybody joined in and participated. Teachers gain personal pride and satisfaction when they are able to provide innovative teaching that gets students involved and engaged. Students are inspired to learn. And you helped make it possible.
The EMS ISD Education Foundation is excited to facilitate and administer this program, giving teachers the opportunity to implement innovative and creative teaching ideas that otherwise would go unfunded. Together we improve education in our district benefiting our students and teachers.
A Proven Difference
Teachers that have received our the grants report:
- Increased level of student participation and interaction

The EMS ISD Education Foundation Employee Scholarship Awards assist District staff in pursuit of college and specialty degrees, or certifications that will enhance their skills directly benefiting the students of our district.
