Community support has enabled the Alameda Education Foundation to raise funds and coordinate programs to support and enhance the quality of K-12 public education in Alameda. Here’s what your contributions supported in 2012-2013:
One hundred thirty two classroom teachers were “adopted” this year totalling $66,000 directly to the classroom to support teachers and students. The Foundation directs 100% of each $500 Adopt A Classroom to teachers.
AEF’s Enrichment program served 3,413 students including after-school classes (2,733) and summer camps (534). We introduced city-wide after-school programs such as orchestra and dance, increased classes in technology, and extended our reach to middle school students, as well as continuing classes in art, music, foreign languages, creative writing, science, and many other subjects.
Over 500 student-athletes representing seven Alameda public middle school programs participated in Middle School Sports this year, including volleyball (fall), basketball (winter) and track & field (spring). This program receives no state or district funding – it is 100% supported by modest program and gate fees, grants and generous donations.
Alameda’s premier event celebrating public education welcomed almost 400 people as we honored school innovative programs, teachers, and volunteers.
AEF provided mini-grants to all music teachers through our Adopt A Classroom program. We undertook an instrument donation program to help get instruments in the hands of more students.
Thank you for Supporting Student Success!
