WEF IS ALLOCATING $50,000 TO FINANCE MORE IPAD PURCHASES
Wyckoff NJ – JUNE 5, 2012:
The Wyckoff Education Foundation (WEF) announces the allocation of $50,000 to the Wyckoff School District for additional purchases of iPad devices. The funds will be designated for iPad purchases, teacher training & applications.
This years’ funding is in addition to the 2011 WEF funding allocation where 125 iPads were distributed among the four Wyckoff Elementary Schools & Middle School.
“The continued support from Wyckoff Education Foundation is critical to the development of our tools for learning. This new round of IPad purchases will allow us to offer more students a diverse learning experience”, said Rich Kuder, Superintendent of Wyckoff Schools.
“We are thrilled to continue this important funding initiative”, said Robert Bayer, President Wyckoff Education Foundation. “We launched this pilot program last year and after the enormous success & positive feedback from Teachers & Students, WEF is proud to participate once again. The new iPad purchase will contribute to the “one to one” science initiative at Eisenhower School and will also provide additional iPads to the elementary schools for math, reading and literacy initiatives.”
The Wyckoff Education Foundation is a non-profit organization created in 1990 in response to declining government funding of schools. The WEF Fundraisers directly benefit more than 2,300 Wyckoff students in the four elementary schools and the Eisenhower Middle School. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised $1.2 million and has awarded the funds through grants to the Wyckoff Board of Education.
