NEW 200 stands for Network for Educational Excellence in Wheaton-Warrenville for District 200. The Mission of the NEW 200 Foundation is to enhance the learning experiences of District 200 students. The Foundation strives to bridge the gap between CUSD200 budget limitations and the desire to expand educational opportunities for all students through;
- Awarding teacher grants for innovative teaching methods
- Providing new technology to enhance student learning
- Supporting S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Enginering, Math) initiatives
- Recognizing excellence in teaching
Specific initiatives for 2015-2016 school year can be found here.
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.
Help the schools through Amazon Smile – It is very easy, a one-time registration at NEW200.org/smile and they will donate 0.5% of all your future purchases to NEW200. It is the same as the regular site (your cart and preferences copied over).
