funds for schools
The Ravenswood Education Foundation has raised more than $1.3 million during the past year to support student achievement, according to Executive Director Renu Nanda.
The foundation's mission is to foster educational outcomes in the Ravenswood City School District on a par with those of students from surrounding communities, says Ms. Nanda.
Funds raised will be used for such projects as a district coordinator to enhance technology, science and math instruction and training for the new Common Core standards.
The foundation is seeking Adopt-a-Teacher volunteers to provide school supplies, help with classroom parties, and offer encouragement to a K-5 teacher in the district.
