Lockhart business and community leaders have launched a new non-profit foundation to provide direct financial support for innovative classroom projects in the Lockhart Independent School District.

The Education Foundation for Lockhart ISD will raise money from businesses and individuals to fund grants for classroom projects that aren’t supported in the school district’s operations budget. Teachers will apply directly to the Foundation for grants, which will be awarded annually beginning next year.
