Student Programs

Aldine Education Foundation strives for student success both in Aldine ISD classrooms and beyond. To strengthen education for all students, Aldine Education Foundation encourages educator excellence through support of the Teacher of the Year program. Additionally, we provide funds to implement unique classroom programs that enhance student learning through Innovative Teaching Grants. The two AEF programs that directly benefit students are Scholarships and Foundation Scholars.
