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
Specific initiatives for this school year can be found here.
So far this school year provided funds for these projects: – $3,000 to supplement the TenMarks online math program for Middle Schools – purchased 8 iPads for students with Special Needs at Wheaton North in the Syracuse program, through partnership with SEA200.org.
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.
Save these dates to raise funds for Classroom Technology: – April 13 – Pizza Tasting Night to award Distinguished Teacher Awards
- April 25 – a fun and Family Friendly 5k through Giving DuPage 5k Human Race
