Annual Grant Update
United Way Grant Application
The four Nelson County FRYSC units each wish to apply individually for grant funding through Tri-County United Way. Team Up! FRYSC, representing Cox’s Creek, Foster Heights and Old Kentucky Home; Fusion YSC, representing NCHS, Thomas Nelson and Horizons Academy; The NESTT FRYSC representing both Bloomfield schools; and The Village FRYSC, representing Boston, New Haven and the Early Learning Center, wish to apply for funding totaling $7,500 together, in support of specific initiatives for each FRYSC center. Grant funding like this helps each center to provide services programs that go beyond the funding capacity typically expected through regular channels. Services vary depending upon the needs of specific age groups served by each center, and range from mentoring services for older students to promoting early learning and successful transition to school for our younger students. Funds are not used for administrative purposes, but rather are used for activities and programs to promote academic achievement, student well-bing and successful transition into adult life. Uses align well with the mission and vision of United Way, which has typically been very supportive of FRYSC requests for assistance. Matching funds are not required for these requests.
Motion Passed: The Nelson County Board of Education approve the grant applications as described. passed with a motion by Mr. Larry Pate and a second by Mrs. Diane Breeding.
Girls Readiness in Technology (G.R.I.T.) Program Grant

The grant will fund this after school program designed to teach 15 middle school girls, grades 6-8, how to design and build robots powered by Sphero and other programs. The GRIT concept uses core lessons to present STEM challenges that foster creative problem-solving and teamwork while enhancing their math, science and computing skills.
Motion Passed: The Nelson County Board of Education approve as presented. passed with a motion by Mr. David Norman and a second by Mr. Larry Pate.
