Established in 2009, The Folsom Cordova Education Foundation (FCEF) works to benefit all students in the Folsom Cordova Unified School District. Our district includes the cities of Folsom and Rancho Cordova and is home to approximate 19,868 students who attend one of our 20 elementary schools, one K-8 Charter School, 4 middle schools, 3 comprehensive high schools, 2 continuation high schools, an independent study high school or a community day school. In addition, the District operates preschools, junior kindergartens, and childcare centers. Of our 19,868 students, 12% are English Learners and 75% of these students with another language live in Rancho Cordova or in Mather, while 25% call Folsom home. Our Socioeconomically Disadvantaged population is estimated at 7,027 (37%) and the Students With Disabilities population is 2,056 (11%).
The FCEF works closely with district administration to align our funding priorities with district goals and to invest in programs that maximum our impact on student success.
The FCEF funding priorities include programs that Support Reading and Literacy, Parent and Community Involvement in our schools, College and Career Readiness and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). Last year we awarded over $22,000 in grants to 17 of our school sites having a lasting effect on student success. This year we plan to award even more grants and expand our impact and outreach within the district.
