Chula Vista, CA – The EastLake Educational Foundation (EEF) recently awarded a combined amount of $150,000 to fund technology for the 2013-2014 school year; $20,000 was awarded to each school: EastLake Elementary, Salt Creek Elementary, Olympic View Elementary, Arroyo Vista Charter School, EastLake Middle School and EastLake High School. And an additional $30,000 in “extra credit” was awarded to three schools that participated by volunteering for EEF events in different capacities.
“We are extremely excited to provide this much needed technology funding to our local schools. When today’s children begin to enter college or the professional world they are expected to be exceedingly proficient in all aspects of the technological tools they will use which is why we do what we do to support the schools,” says EEF Executive Director, Nicole Graichen.
Funding will be used for many different technology related items as each school’s needs differ greatly. Some of the much needed funded items include: Interactive Whiteboards/Smart Boards, iPads, wireless capability for campuses, science kits, computer labs, online grading capability for teachers and parents, technology specialists and more.
