Katy ISD Partners in Education Hosts KEYS Mentor Program Kick OffKaty ISD Partners in Education Hosts KEYS Mentor Program Kick Off2016-08-25T16:32:08Z<div class="ExternalClass0979BEFF0CCC435D8742A164F9F43EB4"><p>​Keep Encouraging Youth toward Success – KEYS – the Katy ISD mentor program, will kick off another successful year of mentoring on Thursday, September 22, from 8-9:30 a.m. in the Merrell Center.  Katy ISD campuses will host tables for their mentors along with any community members who might be interested in becoming a mentor.  </p><p>KEYS is a relationship, not a tutoring, program that matches a caring adult with a student on the brink of success. Mentors make a one-school-year commitment and meet with their students for up to one hour each week, on campus, during the school day, during the school year.  KEYS survey results from the 2015-2016 school year showed that 88% of KEYS students increased grades, 80% decreased absences and 87% decreased discipline referrals.</p><p>Over its 20-year-history, thousands of mentors have changed the trajectory of their KEYS student's lives.  As school starts this year, hundreds of Katy ISD students are waiting for a mentor of their own.  If you have <strong>ever thought about becoming a mentor</strong>, or if you are <strong>already a KEYS mentor</strong>, please join us at the KEYS Kick Off.  Click <a href="https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7DZRPWH">HERE</a> to RSVP or click <a href="https://apps.katyisd.org/public/KEYSMentorApplication/Default.aspx">HERE</a> to complete a KEYS mentor application.  For more information please contact Martha Brown at 281.396.2468, or <a href="mailto:marthabrown@katyisd.org"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">marthabrown@katyisd.org</span></a>.  </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>About Katy ISD Partners in Education </strong>– Katy ISD Partners in Education creates school-support opportunities for parents, businesses and the community by offering a wide variety of options amenable to every schedule, talent and expertise.  We bring volunteers into Katy ISD classrooms at each campus and all grade levels.  To learn more, visit <a href="/dept/pie/Pages/default.aspx">Katy ISD Partners in Education. </a></p></div>

Katy ISD Reaches Milestone: Over One Million Volunteer HoursKaty ISD Reaches Milestone: Over One Million Volunteer Hours2016-05-23T19:43:33Z<div class="ExternalClass2A687E6317104080AE0C790D1C36BA2C"><p>​This school year, Katy ISD's Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) reached a significant and unparalleled milestone, donating an astonishing 1,018,981 hours to students and staff.  Although the number unto itself is impressive, the true implication is reflected in the dedication of Katy ISD parent and community volunteers.  Twenty years ago in 1996, volunteers contributed 156,000 hours, with 500,000 hours donated in 2006.  That number has more than doubled in 10 years.</p><p>To commemorate this achievement, students from Raines High School and the Opportunity Awareness Center, under the tutelage of art teacher Sophia Buddenhagen, created a masterpiece covered with signatures from volunteers across the district.  The artwork, created on a door represents the door thousands of volunteers have opened to thousands of students.  The project was recently unveiled at Katy ISD's annual volunteer celebration where each campus volunteer of the year was also announced.  They include: </p><table class="ms-rteTable-default" cellspacing="0" style="width:84%;"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default"
