Many, many hours spent by Professional Event Planner (Barbara Cohen), Professional Caterer (Torie Laurent), and Professional Accountant/Realtor/Saint (Laura Martin): Free
How the money will be used: The approximate $50,000 the grade school will receive (post expenses, split with high school, and before Paddle Raise money) will fund our teachers’ grants budget, social and academic enrichment and miscellaneous community events that are not self-funded.
The grade school half of the Paddle Raise for Technology (nearly $50,000) will be used to support the Technology Plan. The three prongs of the District’s plan are 1) Hire a Tech Guru to integrate technology into the curriculum; 2) Give financial and time support to the teachers for full training; and 3) Purchase hardware to support a 1:1 student:device program for grades 3-12. The Paddle Raise technology funds are in a “restricted” budget (only spent on technology) and accessed after a PTC Executive Board vote on a District grant request.
