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 $32,000 in grants to teachers and schools for projects that would not have otherwise had a funding source. We are currently in a rebuilding phase. 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.
Specific initiatives for this school year can be found here.
Help the schools through Amazon Smile – It is super 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).
