Independence Title

2016-17 Teacher Fund Campaign, generously underwritten by Independence Title Company

MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR 25 YEARS

50 TEACHERS FOR 2017. Every dollar counts. Every donor matters.

Approximately 63% of Eanes property tax dollars never make it to our classrooms because they are recaptured by the state to fund other districts.

With 85% of the district’s budget dedicated to personnel, the difference is our teachers. By funding vital teacher and staff positions, EEF bridges the gap that would exist without these teachers.

EEF is the only organization that can fund additional teacher and staff positions for our district. 100% of your EEF donations stay in the district. 

Teachers Make it Happen!

Most of the EEF funded teachers are NOT REQUIRED by the state

They are considered “luxuries.” For the 2016-2017 school year, EEF dollars funded positions such as 5th grade teachers, counselors, nurses, special ed, & reading and math specialists at the elementary schools. At the middle and high school levels, the funds helped lower class size levels by funding robotics, gifted and talented and AP teachers, and many more.

The following teacher and staff positions, courses and programs are NOT REQUIRED or supported by the State of Texas (TEA); they are considered extras or luxuries.
