Attention, All IPAD Users!
To help meet student needs, the Avon Education Foundation recently provided more than $11,300 to fund various reading, literacy and remediation programs in Avon schools thanks to the community’s generous donations to the AEF. This school year, AEF allocated $500 per elementary and $1,000 per intermediate school for the "Sustaining, Differentiating, and Improving Literacy Instruction" program that enables principals and teachers to purchase materials and provide instruction based on the unique literacy needs of each school's students. At AIS-East, funding will be used to add more resources to the science and social studies curriculum. At AIS-West, an educational software program was purchased.
In addition, the AEF funded various remediation programs. For example, computer tablets were purchased to enable teachers to better customize instruction for individual students; timers were also purchased to help students improve time management skills.
The AEF is a 501(c)3 charity. Donations to AEF are tax-deductible and positively impact Avon schools and students. Please visit their website at www.avoneducationfoundation.org for more information.
