The foundation is partnering with the Edmonds School District to help struggling eighth grade students gain extra support in fundamental math concepts. Currently, 48 percent of all continuously enrolled students in eighth grade score below passing on state assessment scores.
A strong foundation in Algebra 1 is essential to successfully achieving both math proficiency and graduation requirements at the high school level. By offering algebra enhancement, students will become more prepared to meet the rigors of high school algebra and geometry courses. The program’s goal is to bridge the gap in math skills.
The foundation is continuing to offer the very successful Hazel Miller Back-to-School Basics program. District teachers can receive reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs for classroom supplies that are outside of the District’s scope of funding. Reimbursement applications and program details are currently available on the foundation’s website.
