Contributions in Action

huntsville madison schools foundation supporting education news

We invest directly in the classroom. Since 2000, The Schools Foundation has directed almost $2,000,000 to this effort. We have a history of delivering quality professional development programs for teachers and administrators, and a reputation for supporting innovative technology to enhance teaching and learning. By creating programs that help fill a need in the school districts, we collaborate and then implement, maintaining a focus on increasing student achievement.

The Schools Foundation works diligently with community partners and each school system to identify areas of greatest need.

For example, the Foundation worked with Toyota and other local partners to establish a comprehensive, state-of-the-art Interactive Distance Learning Network to seventeen area schools. Courses never before offered in certain area schools were made available through the miracle of interactive distance learning, even before Alabama’s ACCESS system was in place.

Other examples of our work include: scholarships and classroom grants for teachers, Team American Rocket Competition, A+ College Ready, the Military Child Education Coalition, and the Principally Speaking Network. The Schools Foundation continues to identify and support technological advances and professional development . The Foundation works to build volunteer and business partnerships and to strengthen community support for education. The Educators Institute was established in 2009 to serve as a vounteer organization in support of educational initiatives. Membership in this group is open to all interested individuals.

Contributions from The Schools Foundation programs are distributed on an equitable basis to the three school systems based on student enrollment.
