NSF DONATES $105,000 TO NEWTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS
At the February 25 School Committee Meeting, Newton Schools Foundation presented Dr. David Fleishman, superintendent of the Newton Public Schools, with a check for $105,000 for 2015-16. This donation represents NSF's yearly contribution to fund innovative educational programs that are difficult to address in the school department’s operating budget. The funds that NSF raises support Newton Public Schools initiatives that prepare students to thrive in today’s complex world, ranging from specialized curricula inside and beyond the classroom to pioneering professional development for faculty to closing the student achievement gap.
