The Friendswood ISD Education Foundation, or FEF, gave out a pair of grants totaling a little more than $40,200 as part of the foundation’s Spring Legacy Grants on April 12.

The overview

The Spring Legacy Grants are “designed to exceed the thresholds of FEF’s traditional Adopt-A-Grant program in size, scope and impact, ranging from $5,000 to $40,000 per project,” according to an April 14 newsletter from the district.

The grants are meant to enhance education and the learning experiences within the district, according to the newsletter.

The details

A grant of about $21,440 was awarded to Kaitlyn Alati, a Friendswood High School Quest teacher. Quest teachers provide life skills support to meet the needs of students whose intellectual, developmental and academic levels require instruction at an alternate or prerequisite level, according to the district’s website.

The grant is for a “Sensory Room Glow Up” and will allow Alati to create a “flexible, adaptable sensory space at the school” for students with those sensory needs, according to the newsletter.

Another grant, totaling more than $18,750, was awarded to Chantell Edmond, a Zue S. Bales Intermediate math coach. The grant is for “Bronco Science Lab: Where Everyone is a Scientist!” The grant will help improve science and engineering education at the school, according to the newsletter.
