Commerce ISD

Commerce ISD Superintendent Charlie Alderman comments on summer programs offered by the district, including new programs funded by a $1.5 million state and federal grant (shared with the Boles ISD) in cooperation with the Commerce Boys and Girls Club, and a continuation of the "Summer Experience," in connection with Texas A&M-Commerce, as part of the ASPIRE (A School Experience for Innovation, Recreation and Enrichment).  Around 300-400 children are participating.

A pair of Hunt County school districts are sharing a $1.5 million grant  for afterschool programs. The Commerce and Boles ISDs will get money from an Afterschool Centers on Education, or ACE grant over the next four years.

Commerce ISD got the bulk of the grant money – it will have $850,000 a year for the next few years to bolster enrichment programs. Boles will get $650,000.

On the first day of the 2018-19 school year for the Commerce ISD, Superintendent Charlie Alderman says the CISD and the Boles ISD have partnered to receive a "21st Century Grant" from the state of Texas and the federal Department of Education.  It will provide $850,000 per year to Commerce, or $3.4 million over four years, to provide after-school and summer programs.  Activities in the new program will begin September 4.
