Our goal is to solve the solvable problems so our students are ready to learn.

 

Internet connectivity is a solvable problem.

 

Of the 27,000 households in our Beaverton schools, 475 do not have a reliable way to connect to the internet this school year. With your support, students will check out a WiFi hotspot they can use to attend online classes and complete their school work. These devices are for students for whom traditional internet service providers are not a solution.

 

Your gift of $250 will provide a student with a mobile hotspot and internet service for the entire school year. A contribution of $25 supports connectivity for one month.

 

“We’re all in this together.”

We have all heard this refrain these last few months. Together, we have shown that we can make a difference in our community and for our kids. Now we need to partner to address the challenges of returning to school.

Beaverton students start school soon, with inevitably much more emphasis on online components than ever. No matter how school looks, every student in our community deserves to start the year with the tools they need to be successful, from basic supplies to online connectivity.

For our teachers and staff back to school means preparing differently than in the past. Pulling together, we can give our educators the resources they need – whether that’s supporting a broad spectrum of students’ learning needs online or meeting specialized classroom supply needs. There are plenty of projects and programs that cannot be paid for by normal school funding but are critical to meeting the needs of our students.

Be part of the solution!

With your help today, we can ensure that the path to school is as smooth as possible. Our collective goal: solve the solvable problems so we can get kids ready for back to school.

Our first phase of this campaign focuses on connectivity needs. We will announce the second phase of our campaign shortly that will focus on the tools and supplies our students and educators will need for fall.

Your gift to the Back to School: Connections and Tools Fund will support our Beaverton students and educators to be ready. Let’s work together to give our students, our educators and our school community the resources they need to make this year the most successful it can be.

Since 1988, BEF has helped our Beaverton educators access community resources for innovative classroom projects and supported afterschool and summer academic enrichment. Our support covers those projects and programs that cannot be paid for out of normal school funding but are critical to meeting the needs of our students. We remain here to help our community and classroom connect.
