2013-14 Buckeye Education Foundation Grants

Your gifts are making a big difference for our students!

The Foundation was formed to address inadequate public school funding, to promote academic excellence as a core community value, to make our schools a magnet for families and businesses relocating to the area, and to ultimately provide the top quality education our students need to thrive in a 21st century workforce.

Toward these goals, the Buckeye Education Foundation’s current Tech Up, Buckeye! campaign has funded, through community donations, the completion of wireless networking to reach every classroom and every student in the Buckeye Union School District, a full week of EdTech Training for 20 of our 200 teachers, and a full-time EdTech Teacher Coach position to work with teachers daily accelerating the implementation of Educational Technology throughout the district.

The Foundation, through community donations, also helps fund PE Instructor and Library Aide positions increasing every K-8 student’s time in school libraries and every Grade 1-5 student’s time with a certificated PE instructor.

Creating an environment that values and promotes student achievement cannot be the sole responsibility of educators, parents, and the schools. It requires the concerted effort of the entire community.

The Buckeye Education Foundation is grateful for the tremendous support we’ve received during our first few years from our neighbors, school parents, the many local businesses, and numerous charitable organizations. We look forward to continuing to work with all of you to make educational excellence a cornerstone of our community.

With your help, we are well on our way to achieving these goals, but there is still more to do!

SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDING IS CRITICAL!

Good schools mean good communities, higher property values, and lower crime rates. We live in an exceptional area filled with exceptional people. Working together we can continue to offer the children in our community the exceptional educational opportunities that they deserve!

Our schools are very good. Together, we can make them even better!

In the 2013-14 school year, your donations to the Foundation allowed us to grant $156,966 to fund certified PE, Library, Technology to the benefit of every child in the district. The Foundation’s Tech Up! initiative funded the completion of wireless networking to reach every student in every classroom, a full week of training for our first 20 EdTech teachers, and a full-time Education technology Coach to support our teachers on a daily basis..

THE PROGRAMS WE FUND ARE APPLIED EQUITABLY ACROSS THE DISTRICT AND ARE PROGRAMS THAT MUST BE FUNDED AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL.

Thank you to all our volunteers and donors who are doing so much to make our schools the best they can be!
