1 Research and Grant Development A N U A L __ R E P O R T

2 From the District Grant Writer/Research Analyst Grant Development Office I am please to present the 2010– 2011 annual report of the Grant Development Office under the Department of Federal Programs. Many exciting and innovative programs have been funded through our grant development efforts despite the current economic outlook. This continued success has a direct impact on the educational programs and services. In addition, Federal (ARRA/Stimulus) funds have provided Laredo Independent School District with the opportunity to enhance our educational programs such as: Dual Language, Elementary Science, Fine Arts, Dual Credit, Technology, Parental Involvement, Fiscal Stability, Professional Development and School Safety. This third annual report is designed to inform all stakeholders in the types of grant application submissions for external funding sources to supplement our current educational programs and support services. Overall, there were 31 grants being funded for a total of $81,551, During the 2010 – 2011school year the Grant Development Office submitted 46 applications and processed 31awards totaling 81,551, This represents a decrease of 48.42% in the number of applications submitted and a 43.66% decrease in the number of grants awarded. Currently, there are 8 applications that have been submitted and approved for the school year and there are 9 grant applications for the school year that have been submitted pending approval for a total of $35,728, The decrease was a direct result of decreased ARRA/Stimulus funds reductions and our current economic situation. In addition, Texas Education Agency reduced a number of grant funded resources due to State funding reductions in educational programs. During the Fiscal year of 2010 – 2011, Laredo Independent School District received funding for employee performance incentives, summer enrichment, library media services, physical education, science lab construction, accelerated instruction in reading and math, pre- kindergarten programs, intensive reading and math initiatives, school improvement and school safety, professional development and parental/community involvement programs/projects. The administration and compliance of awarded grants to Laredo Independent School District continues to exceed expectations in an increasingly restrictive budget and competitive environment. This continued increase in the number of grant proposals submitted and funded is very encouraging and is a testament to the underlying excellence of administration and staff in our ability to compete successfully. We expect to have continued increases in funding source opportunities and grants awarded for 2011 – I am proud of the efforts of everyone and look forward to another prosperous and productive year for grant development. Sincerely, Scott Roberts Scott Roberts, MBA/IT and MS/IS District Grant Writer/Research Analyst

AWARDS BY SOURCE AND PURPOSE Laredo Independent School District Award Activity FY Grant Development Office

6 Laredo Independent School District Award Activity FY Grant Development Office $1.762 MILLION AWARDED FOR THE DISTRICT AWARD FOR TEACHER EXCELLENCE (D.A.T.E.) GRANT The Grant Development Office had a successful 2009 – 2010 distribution of funds to all campus based personnel that qualified for our second performance based awards system. The 2010 – 2011 our third and final year of the performance based award has been approved and is currently being implemented for the 2010 – 2011 school year. Tentative payout is scheduled for September The D.A.T.E. grant provides performance based incentives to all campus personnel meeting the programs performance based criteria. 60% of the grant must apply directly to core area teachers and the other 40% for all other campus instructional and non-instructional support staff. In prior years the district has been awarded the Teacher Excellence Educator grant known as (T.E.E.G.). The T.E.E.G. grants were given to campuses that met the state performance growth index and were selected to apply directly from TEA. This award was then distributed through a campus based decision making committee. Different from the T.E.E.G. grant the D.A.T.E. grant is the first grant of its kind for the district and the district has been awarded funding of this type to provide additional incentives to teachers for reaching different levels of performance based measures at various grade levels. Teachers qualify for higher amounts of incentives based of their respective grade level performance measures as defined in the grant criteria as well as set amounts for maintaining TAKS averages above 70%. The contingency funds include an attendance award and the remaining will be equally distributed among all teachers qualifying for either Part I or Part II. Meetings and Presentations were held district wide and with campus administrators and staff in order to explain the process and procedures necessary to implement this grant successfully.

7 Laredo Independent School District Award Activity FY Grant Development Office $7.1 MILLION AWARDED TO SCIENCE LABS CONSTRUCTION PROJECT FOR MARTIN, CIGARROA, AND NIXON HIGH SCHOOLS. Recently, Laredo Independent School District Division of Operations completed construction of the new state of the art Science labs at Martin, Nixon, and Cigarroa High Schools. These state of the art Science labs will provide our students and community with the most advanced Science lab classrooms for The Grant Development Office submitted these applications through the school foundation grant program funds and were awarded $7,184, for the New Science Labs Classroom Construction. The amount decreased from $7,511, based on student enrollment numbers. The grant funding formula considers the average daily attendance, enrollment, and number of current classrooms identified as science labs. The formula takes in to account the number of existing classrooms identified as science labs, the need for additional science labs, the maximum number of science labs eligible to satisfy the 4 year science requirements, the maximum number of labs eligible for each campus and the calculation of the grant amount requested. These funds allow the Laredo Independent School District to infuse these funds into completion of its science lab construction projects that are now ready for occupancy. These funds could not have come at a better time when there has been a fund shortfall to complete these projects from the 2005 Bond Issuance that called for new science lab construction. These funds are only to provide additional science lab classrooms and cannot be used to replace existing science lab classrooms. Raymond & Tirza Martin High School received $3,592, for an additional 11 classrooms. Joseph W. Nixon High School received $1,633, for an additional 5 classrooms. Dr. Leonides G. Cigarroa High School received $1,959, for an additional 6 classrooms.
