We Did It!
Thanks to support from parents and community members the foundation achieved its goal of providing $1.5 million to the district for essential and innovative academic programs.
Once upon a time it was a common refrain from parents "get off that computer and do your homework!" Today, the internet has opened up as a place for learning and collaboration, not just games and social media. The educational opportunities are limitless, but students need access and guidance to take advantage of these opportunities.
Your donation funds classroom cloud connectivity for all students. The Foundation made a $300K financial commitment which the district leveraged to apply for a grant from Google. Google matched the MVLA Foundation grant which allowed the high schools to accelerate its technology roll-out. Starting in 2015-16 school year, both Los Altos and Mountain View High Schools will have BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs fully implemented.
"Learning in the Cloud" will help all of our students gain needed 21st century skills so they hit the ground running in college and the work force. If you missed our March 31st Showcase event, watch this video of our students and teachers using digital devices and cloud learning in the classroom!
