The Davis School Foundation has granted $185,000 to the Davis school district for the 2016-17 academic year. According to Lori Duisenberg, foundation president, this grant will fund:
* Classroom instructional aides: “DSF’s funding of classroom aides for math and reading at elementary school campuses has had overwhelmingly positive results,” she said. “We are doubling down to continue to fill this gap so that our children receive the individualized attention they need to grow, learn and develop their core skills.”
* Counseling: “Working with the community, DSF has played a key role in advocating for and funding school counselors in our district,” she added. “Safe, healthy schools are composed of safe, healthy students, and counselors are the front lines of support. DSF is committed to providing these invaluable resources for all students. ”
* Technology: “DSF recognizes the vital importance of access to instructional technology for all DJUSD students,” Duisenberg said. “We have played a prominent role in supporting the deployment of Chromebooks (basic laptop computers) into the classroom, and we will continue our efforts to make state-of-the-art technology accessible across all of our schools.”
