Educators have great ideas to augment the core curriculum. They have the passion to embrace their vocation and are eager to take the extra steps to increase the value of education for their students. Student Enrichment Awards provides the means to bring these ideas to fruition.
Because of the SCV Education Foundation, schools are producing newspapers and literary magazines, science classes have hands-on equipment, computer programs are updated, music is part of the day, fine art is created, and gardens grow.
