The mission of the Smithville Education Foundation (SEF) is to support the Smithville Independent School District (SISD) by working together with our community to serve as a catalyst for generating and distributing resources to inspire students to excel.

Our goal is simple...SEF works to help our teachers inspire greatness in their students.

We accomplish this goal through these programs:

Art Enrichment Programming

SEF, the Lost Pines Artisans' Alliance,
Playhouse Smithville and 
the Smithville Public Library 
partner with SISD to bring lessons in the
fine arts to our students in grades K-5.
Innovative Teaching Grants

To date SEF has funded over $20,000
innovative grants to SISD teachers.
