LVEF grants over $110,000 to local schools (LVEF News Release, 12/04)
The Las Virgenes Educational Foundation recently donated over $110,000 to the fifteen schools in the Las Virgenes School District from its 2004 High School Summer School program. Each school completed a "Needs Application" requesting funds for targeting increased student academic achievement or advancing the educational environment of the campus through improved facilities, new equipment, or vital programs and services at the school sites.

The most common needs included development of writing instructional techniques, upgrading old technology, and materials for grade-level teaching teams. Each school received funds based on the number of its students enrolled.

In the past two years, LVEF has donated over $170,000 to the district's schools. This summer, LVEF will conduct its third consecutive High School Summer School program, and funds generated will continue to assist in maintaining quality education district-wide.
