TUSD receives two foundation awards for use in elementary school programs

Posted May 13, 2013

TUSD's Elementary School Leadership recently received two foundation awards for use in elementary school programs in the 2013-2014 school year.

The Stocker Foundation awarded TUSD with $107,016 for an intensive literacy immersion program to run during the fall and spring breaks for selected second graders. The award will also help TUSD's Community Education to expand their literacy resources for participating students.

The Tucson-based Gordon Foundation has awarded TUSD with $5,000 that will help first-grade teachers purchase supplies for their classrooms. The Gordon Foundation Board hopes that others will make similar gifts to the district to help teachers get much needed supplies.
