The Duncanville ISD Education Foundation presented a $100,000 check to the district last Friday to be used in support of student technology needs.

Though some Duncanville ISD students are now returning to traditional classrooms, the need for iPads, computers and hot spots continues to be a high priority. The Education Foundation saw that need and stepped up with funding.

“Our presence here is an affirmation of our support for the school district, Dr. Smith, administrators, teachers and staff but mainly for the students,” said Education Foundation Board President, Dr. Mike Miner. We support them all.”

Since its inception in 1996, the Duncanville ISD Education has provided more than $1 million to fund innovative teaching projects.

“There is nothing better than doing something that can have a positive impact in the life of another person,” said Duncanville ISD Superintendent Dr. Marc Smith. “What you all have done, the commitment you have made, we appreciate that and don’t take it for granted.”

In order to continue supporting our students and teachers, the Education Foundation is launching a larger giving campaign involving community members, local businesses and corporate partners. The first fundraising component of this campaign includes a raffle to give away a convertible 2007 Chrysler Crossfire.

The foundation will sell 500 raffle tickets for $100 each.
