A BIG thank you to our Somerset ISD Education Foundation partners.
Toyota has pledged $200,000 to Somerset ISD! Toyota continues to be our champion of change initiatives and will support in closing the digital divide. The magnitude of their impact on student success is astounding.
H‑E‑B provided assistance in the amount of $10,000 to the Education Foundation in support of the 2020-2021 Back to School Needs grant request! These funds purchased much needed technology for students at Somerset ISD. Given the current shift to remote/virtual learning, these Chromebooks will support the districts multi-year technology plan designed to improve teaching and learning for all students grades K-12 with digital learning resources. Thank you H-E-B for supporting our district, we are truly grateful for the impact you make on students!
