Multicultural Library

With a multicultural library, elementary students in Angleton ISD will deepen their level of comprehension, increase their reading levels, and develop a strong sense of appreciation and sensitivity towards others who are different than themselves. Teachers will use multicultural literature through guided reading to create an awareness of cultural diversity that is represented in our school and our society.

Through the use of multicultural literature, students will be connected to the values, strengths, and ideals that a cultural group considers vital. Text will represent accurately, the characters’ country of origin, address complex issues with sensitivity and nuance, portray characters as problem-solvers, and feature the diversity most typical in different regional areas. Angleton ISD has made it a goal to empower students to communicate effectively, think critically, solve problems and serve their community. By providing students with multicultural texts, students will be able to develop an understanding of the cultural differences within our community. As a result students will be better equipped to solve issues that may arise due to cultural differences.

We want to provide multiple means of representation, action, expression and engagement that are critical to meeting the needs of all learners. Books will be purchased to represent a diverse cultural background so that every student is represented through the text that they read. The goal of the multicultural library is to have literature that represents students of today, not a reflection of historical suppression or stereotypes. Studies show that when students can relate global events to the themes, conflicts and characteristics found in multicultural literature, it helps them to better understand current world issues. Students therefore develop greater cognitive skills as they learn to engage with and critically evaluate the texts that they read.

Angleton ISD is full of instructional personnel with a vision for the future and ideas of innovative teaching and learning. Many times, however, the cost of these programs cannot be met with traditional school funding sources. That's where the Education Foundation and its Grants for Great Ideas come in. The Grants for Great Ideas program funds projects that are directly related to instruction and promote innovation in the classroom. The program is designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward innovative and creative instructional approaches.

While each grant varies, the application for the Grants for Great Ideas requires applicants to describe the need, activities, timeline, and evaluation and success criteria for their proposed grant project.

All proposals are screened to ensure that they:
- Add depth to the curriculum, promote innovation, and help to motivate students
- Support the goals and values of AISD while enriching curriculum objectives
- Support collaboration among grade levels, teams, departments, parents, or the community
- Provide for a sustainable program and possible community partnerships
- Address the varied educational needs of our students and community
- Maintain an appropriate and relevant purpose, itemized budget, implementation plan, and achievable results

The goal of the Grants for Great Ideas is the same as the Education Foundation and Angleton ISD itself – to improve teaching and learning at Angleton ISD. The number of grants awarded depends solely on the funds available to the Angleton ISD Education Foundation through organizations and donors such as United Way.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The goal of the Angleton ISD Education Foundation is to raise funds for projects and activities that go beyond the normal classroom experience, benefiting students, teachers and the entire community through an investment in education. We do this primarily through our Grants for Great Ideas Program. This program is designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward innovative and creative instructional approaches.

All instructional staff (paraprofessionals, teachers, instructional coaches, principals, etc.) are invited and encouraged to apply for a grant. The level of community involvement varies based on the individual grants, however, all applications undergo a rigorous evaluation process by campus leadership, curriculum directors and finally the Education Foundation’s Programs Committee -- comprised of community members and business leaders. The Programs Committee also regularly visits the campuses to review the funded grants in action and provide valuable feedback.

While each grant varies, the application for the Grants for Great Ideas requires applicants to describe the need, activities, timeline, and evaluation and success criteria for their proposed grant project.

All proposals are screened to ensure that they:
- Add depth to the curriculum, promote innovation, and help to motivate students
- Support the goals and values of AISD while enriching curriculum objectives
- Support collaboration among grade levels, teams, departments, parents, or the community
- Provide for a sustainable program and possible community partnerships
- Address the varied educational needs of our students and community
- Maintain an appropriate and relevant purpose, itemized budget, implementation plan, and achievable results

The Angleton ISD Education Foundation is governed by a diverse Board of Directors made up of business, community and educational leaders.
After ensuring the grants are in-line with district needs, the grants are sent to the Education Foundation’s Programs Committee for review. This committee is made up of community members and business leaders. These volunteers are comprised of individuals from various educational and professional backgrounds to make sure the evaluations are fair and well-rounded. Each volunteer reviews blinded copies of all applications individually and submits initial feedback to the executive director. Then, the committee meets in-person to openly discuss the grants and collaborate. This in-person review is crucial as it gives the committee members a chance to vocalize their opinions and defend their positions. In addition to leading to grants being funded, it sheds light on problem areas within the district and creates an opportunity for community members to have a direct impact on beneficial change.

In 2019:
- $132,974 in classroom grants awarded by the Angleton ISD Education Foundation
- 22 grant programs funded
- 50% of the Angleton ISD student population has been impacted
- 100% of AISD elementary campuses have maker spaces available
- 90% of awarded grants self-report success
- 90% of awarded grants evaluated report success
- 100% of students impacted by the Building Math Minds grants demonstrated significant improvements on STAAR scores
