The Annual Fund
Independent schools like The Campus School must rely on private support to sustain and advance academic excellence, and improve and upgrade classroom tools and technology needed for today’s learner-centered educational environment.
The Campus School Annual Fund supports these core priorities
Professional development for faculty through attendance at teacher workshops, conferences and peer-to-peer learning at other schools. To support the School’s successful STEAM initiative, it is essential to continue training in the STEAM related areas. The increasing presence of technology in every content area demands substantial training in meaningful technology integration into instructional practice. To truly establish the School’s identify as a pre-eminent lab school, faculty presence is essential at professional conferences locally and nationally. In addition, funding is needed to support action research in the classroom that will be shared with the lab school community and the community of practice.
Acquisition of developmentally appropriate learning equipment and technology including science equipment, water tables, CREATE Lab equipment, and engineering and building materials are needed for younger students’ hands-on learning activities; teacher driven technology for all classrooms such as interactive white boards, ELMO all-in-one classroom technology carts, and audio centers; iPads and laptops for students, and increased access to advanced, web-based and Distance Learning courses.
Programmatic training in Math and Literacy (Reading/Writing) designed to promote instructional consistency across all grade levels. The training also promotes the implementation of research based strategies and resources based on current understandings of learner-centered pedagogy.
