SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Teachers, in the Sioux City Community School District, are getting a little help bringing unique programs to local students.
The Sioux City Public Schools Foundation awarded 24 teachers with nearly 12-thousands dollars in grants for innovative projects.
The funds are raised internally by the Sioux City Community School District staff campaign.
District officials are excited to open up new opportunities for students.
"It's just great to me to see that so many members of our community, including our staff, put money into the foundation so we can go beyond what we could normally do for children and do so many innovative things," said Dr. Paul Gausman, Superintendent.
A few of the projects include a book club, fluency club, and a digital production room.
Officials say these projects will impact nearly 5-thousand students.
