The Mission of the NEW 200 Foundation is to enhance the learning experience of District 200 students. The Foundation can bridge the gap between CUSD200 budget limitations and the desire to expand educational opportunities for students through;
- Innovative teaching methods
- New technology for instructional use
- S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Enginering, Math) initiatives
- Recognizing excellence in teaching
A list of items funded so far, for the 2014-2015 School year is here.
Over the past 5 years, we have awarded nearly $45,000 in grants to teachers and schools for classroom technology and projects that would not have otherwise had a funding source. We are rebuilding the Foundation to make it a strong community asset that will benefit everyone. While we are proud of what we have been able to accomplish, the needs are much greater, and our students deserve more. Learn more about us here.
