A+ Foundation for West Aurora Schools

$95,000

This $95,000 Dunham Grant will partially fund "The Global Classroom STEMming for Technology . . . WOW" project to equip all four middle schools in West Aurora School District 129 with computer technology to complete the final phase of a major careers curriculum revision for Grades 6 through 8. The updated "World of Work" curriculum in the middle schools recognizes that children need to begin developing skills for the workplace at a much younger age. Project-based learning will be emphasized in cooperative group and outcome-based settings, where the development of time-management and math and science skills is stressed.
