Elgin ISD is excited to offer current full time employees the opportunity to recoup some of their tuition expenses. Tuition reimbursement exists to support staff members who choose to pursue graduate degrees in the areas of Mathematics, Science, English, Social Studies, and/or Counseling. Reimbursement is also available to individuals seeking initial undergraduate degrees in the area of Bilingual Education. This program is intended to enhance the skills of our staff members, especially in high need areas, by making access to higher education coursework more affordable. Interested individuals must submit a completed application, principal recommendation, and an updated resume to be considered.
The program will reimburse eligible applications $100/credit hour of their annual tuition cost, up to a maximum of $1,500 each school year. Applications may be submitted for reimbursement of tuition for any coursework required for the approved degree plan. Priority will be given to applicants who are pursuing full degrees in Elgin's areas of greatest need. Tuition reimbursement will occur only after the awardee completes a course with a grade of C or higher and submits proof of course payment. Total monies reimbursed district-wide may not exceed total amount budgeted.
An eligible staff member MUST:
- have a valid Texas Teaching Certificate
- be employed full time with Elgin ISD
- continue as a full time employee for 12 months following his/her award
