Castaic Education Foundation (CEF) announced the 2021-2022 grant recipients and presented the items purchased during its 3rd Annual Educator Grant Award Ceremony last week.
The foundation awarded five grants to Castaic Union School District teachers totaling $13,000. The grant money will be used to ensure students have access to the latest technology and programs, to enhance their academic experience – school gardens, flexible classroom seating, science curriculum, and sensory room equipment.
Shawn and Alisha Fonder of Fonder-Solari Inc. were guest presenters.
Since 2007, the foundation has awarded approximately $325,000 in funding to teachers and educators. This year, the foundation also awarded the Peter Sharp Mini-Grant to use purchase lapboards for students at Live Oak Elementary School.
According to CEF Chairperson Julia Phippen, “The Teacher Grants Committee is always excited to see the diverse requests from our educators. They are constantly striving to provide students with new learning opportunities, experiences, and materials to support and strengthen the whole child.”
