About the Education Foundation​

The Katy ISD Education Foundation serves as a catalyst for extraordinary teachers to create extraordinary classroom experiences for their students.
Imagine a classroom
                … that swaps exercise balls for desk chairs.
                … populated by 16-year-old scientists in safety goggles and lab coats.
                … where dirt, mulch and broccoli replace concrete, carpet and worksheets.
                … combining entrepreneurship and environmentalism.
Imagine a classroom
                … where every dream is a possibility.
                … where extraordinary behaviors are the norm.
                … where opportunities are inspired by imagination.
                … where the creative reality of one changes the trajectory of thousands.
Imagine a community that makes all that happen.
Come join us as we help teachers think bigger than they’ve ever thought possible!​
