“The board was amazed by the creativity and passion of the teachers and staff that submitted grant applications,” said FDCS Foundation Board President Jennifer Pederson. “Dr. Ulrich challenged the staff to think big and they delivered with an unprecedented ask of over $235,000. Their applications lead to some tough deliberation by the board, and we are so excited to see the impact that these ideas have in our schools.” “Our generous donors allowed the Foundation to fund these amazing things for classrooms and we couldn’t do it without them,” said FDCS Foundation Director Jodi Martin. The mission of the FDCS Foundation is to help students and educations go above and beyond what district funding allows with grants for professional development, technology and other educational items.
