The regular school budget doesn't cover all the needs and wants of the faculty and staff as they strive to provide our kids with the best educational experience possible.

Our school offers career and technology education to qualified high school students with disabilities who receive special education services in the Austin Independent School District.  Our Horticulture Program prepares students to work in various aspects of agricultural production, including our newest project, the cultivation of edible mushrooms.  The “farm to table movement”, with its focus on local-sourced and sustainably produced agricultural products, is one of the fastest growing segments of the food service industry.  Our students are getting hands-on experience in cultivation practices that are on the cutting edge of that movement.  To that end, we are seeking funds for professional development to better assist our students as our fledging production facility expands.  Our staff has an opportunity to attend a workshop in British Columbia, Canada in June 2017.  This workshop focuses on growing oyster mushrooms, which is the product our students grow. 

This workshop will help us to:

Cultivate our own spawn

Identify needed equipment

Hone our current process and procedure

Learn from world leading experts in the field.


Funding from this campaign will fund:

Travel expenses (i.e. food, fuel and lodging for 30 days)
