Sharks and Shakespeare = Student Success

What do sharks and Shakespeare have in common?  Good question with an even better answer! Both are part of the innovative instruction Chevron and Donors Choose are supporting in classrooms around SBISD as part of the Fuel Your School program. Every year teachers spend an average of $356 of their own money on materials for their students. This adds up to a staggering $1.3 billion dollars a year across the nation. The Fuel Your School program is a collaboration between Chevron and Donors Choose aimed at helping to fund eligible classroom projects. This year, Chevron donated over $150,000 to 195 SBISD classrooms through the program.

In SBISD we know we can't do it alone.  Without the participation and teamwork of parents, educators, and area community and business leaders we would not be able to provide the outstanding educational experiences our students deserve. Thank you to Chevron and Donors Choose for their support!  Below are just a few of the many phenomenal programs supported by Chevron and Donors Choose in Spring Branch.
