Foundation dollars are at work in the Cedar Rapids Community School District every single day. Whether a student is … riding a bus on their way to a curriculum based field trip, learning mathematics via a Smartboard, reading a new phonics book, experimenting with gravity in an upgraded science lab, or enrolling for college study … the impact of the Foundation touches more than 16,000 children in our community.
District staff also benefit from the work of the Foundation. Each Spring, Professional Development Grants are made available to District educators seeking to increase their knowledge in order to be more effective in the classroom. It’s a win/win for both students and teachers!
