Mission:

The Newport Public Education Foundation (NPEF), established in 1991, is an independent, non-profit 501(c)(3) whose mission is to improve the performance of Newport public school children by enhancing their educational opportunities and by building broad-based community support for quality public education.

Results:

We have done this in the past by providing teachers with grants to enhance their classroom activities, assisting the Newport Public Schools in rallying volunteers to read in the classrooms under the BOLD (Books Open Life’s Doors) program, and leading the campaign to raise more than $1 million for furniture, equipment and technology to ensure overall program enhancements at Newport’s historically preserved and renovated Thompson Middle School. We plan to continue in this tradition and expand into programs that support our teachers, students and schools.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

Public school teachers who are grant recipients.

Geographic areas served:

Reviews for Newport Public Education Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

The Newport Public Education Foundation supports the teachers of Newport by funding grants for innovative programs and materials. As a teacher, I have had ideas for programs and materials that are not provided by the district and that I could not personally afford. I have written and received grants numerous times. They include homework backpacks for kindergarten, fish tanks that contain organisms from our bay, field trips and guest speakers, and lots of literature to go along with the projects.

The NPEF supported a cross-curricular opportunity for my high school Biology students to explore the application of DNA technology through the Shoah Project and to travel to New York to visit the Jewish Heritage Museum. The NPEF is a tremendous advocate for our students through the grants awarded to teachers.

As Supervisor of the Arts in the Newport Public Schools I have been writing for and receiving grants from the NPEF for the past several years and have found this to be of great benefit to our students and our programs. The support that is provided from the NPEF allows us to bring entire grade levels of art students into museums and mansions that give insights into the culture and history of our city. NPEF support also allows us the provide opportunities for students to have additional opportunities to participate in after school performance groups to hone their developing skills as performers. NPEF has also allowed us to showcase our student's talents at various events through the year's, providing a broader awareness of the work that our teachers and students do to the community at large. We are very pleased with the support that we have received over the years from the NPEF and look forward to many more years of this collaboration. Alan Bernstein, Supervisor of the Arts, Newport Public Schools.
