The Katy ISD Education Foundation recently announced its seventh year of Inspiring Imagination teacher grant recipients. More than 350 Katy ISD teachers at 43 different campuses were chosen for grants this year. Grant activities range from school gardens to robotics and extend to all subjects and grade levels. Funding will be provided for the 2019-2020 school year. More than $330,000 has been awarded this year; $1.6 Million over the past seven years.
The Foundation exists to raise support for and manage the grant program, an initiative that funds innovative classroom instruction not possible within the parameters of a school district budget. Grant funds are raised through annual pledges from business and community investors, one-time contributions and events.
