"We are excited and truly honored to have the opportunity to impact Chapel Hill ISD classrooms through Innovative Teaching Grants.”  The foundation, which was established in May of 2021, is made up of seven officers and eight board members. The mission for the non-profit organization is to provide grants to teachers.  The Foundation opened its resources for the first time in Spring of 2022. Teachers were asked to create and present an innovative project aligning with the district’s curriculum and Texas Education Agency’s Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).   “Although our initial grants have started small, our intentions are to grow and provide additional monetary resources each year. The only way we can increase grant gifting is through increasing awareness and sponsorships,” said Cindy Gaddis, CHISD Education Foundation President.

CHISD extends free school meals for all students new academic year    The Chapel Hill ISD announced today it will continue its policy to operate the Community Eligibility Program (CEP) under the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program for the 2022-2023 school year.   Schools qualifying to operate CEP serve breakfast and lunch to all children at no charge and eliminate the collection of meal applications for free, reduced-price, and paid student meals. This new approach reduces burdens for both families and school administrators and helps ensure that students receive nutritious meals.  According to the United States Department of Agriculture, schools that adopt CEP are reimbursed using a formula based on the percentage of students categorically eligible for free meals based on their participation in other specific means-tested programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).   The program takes the identified students and divides them by the population. Identified students are those who currently receive government assistance such as SNAP, TANF, Medicaid Free, Homeless migrant worker children and Head Start. We count those children and divide by the total population in the district.    Any district that has more than 40% of the identified students is eligible for the program. Chapel Hill ISD's percentage is 64.69. There is a federal multiplier of 1.6, therefore, all students will receive free breakfast and lunch at CHISD.
