2018 Fund-A-Need Donors

FAN-2018-Logo-web

In today’s ever-changing information age, having strong digital literacy skills is not an option – it’s a must. Whether in academics or the job market, students need to possess a broad range of abilities – from conducting deep research, to evaluating a source, to creating and communicating content responsibly. At this year’s Dinner Dance, guests raised their bid cards for an important new initiative. The 2018 Fund-a-Need, Navigating the Information Age, invests in a district-wide Digital Library Specialist, as well as teacher coaches. Using a proven model, this team will lead a K-12 effort to improve students’ digital literacy skills. 100% of the $185,500 raised is funding this initiative.

* Due to an overwhelming response, the Fund-a-Need goal was surpassed. The initiative has been revised by LBUSD to include an increase of the teacher coaches’ time from .4 – .8 time to a total of 1.2 time. It will also fund an additional $10,000 to OverDrive and $10,000 to database and new book purchases. This will supplement district investment in updating the media centers, providing up to 1800 additional titles to students.
