MISD Community Partnership Awards The Mansfield ISD Education Foundation board members accepted their Community Partnership Award at the Nov. 24 School Board Meeting. E ach month, Mansfield ISD will be recognizing the work of a community partner that significantly contributes back to the district. The selected organizations are recognized at an MISD School Board meeting and receive a special plaque. The Education Foundation started in the fall of 1998. It has awarded more than 1,100 grants; and in the spring of 2016, the organization will have raised more than $3 million in grants for district classrooms. For the month of November, MISD recognized The Education Foundation. The Foundation works to enhance education in MISD and increases private support for educational activities by awarding funds to teachers for innovative projects and programs that are not funded by tax dollars. In December, the district honored Texas Trust Credit Union. Texas Trust has been an MISD partner since 2008. The credit union has provided internships for MISD students, sponsored district events, awarded money in scholarships, and has given more than $300,000 in spirit debit card rewards. The debit card rewards put money back into classrooms. MISD thanks The Education Foundation and Texas Trust Credit Union for their continued support.
