Demopolis City - Schools membership Demopolis is a community passionate about its school sys- tem. For almost 20 years, the Demopolis City Schools Foundation has worked to sup- port excellence and innovation in the classroom by encourag- grants awarded across the school system: "Special education students at Westside are using iPads to complete school work using touchscreen technology. "US Jones students can use ing private investment and the Wfi lab on rainy days during " involvement in the school sys- tem. For as little as $30, mem- bership in the Foundation is a tangible way to directly support our students and teachers. Since 1994, the Foundation has provided over $850,000 in grants to classroom teachers through a competitive grant process. These grants have sup- ported math and science, music and drama, foreign languages and PE equipment, library books and computers. This past fall, the Foundation awarded $50,000 through 23 EE., burning off some energy before going back to class. Middle school students are learning math with interactive smartboards, resulting in more engaged students and improved comprehension. The High School has a "lap- top lab" available for use throughout the school for any teacher to use. All of this and more is only possible because of the generos- ity of local citizens - individuals and business who translate their passion for education into tangi- ble financial support. This year, the Foundation's goal is to raise $50,000 in memberships by June 30 to continue to fund innovative ideas from teachers and support their efforts to give our children a world-class edu- cation. "We are-win $5,000 of this goal. IfT aren't a member, please consider sup- porting the Foundation this year. For as little as $30 you really can make a difference in the classrooms of Demopolis," shares Kim Townsend, Chairman of the Membership Committee.
