During the Board of Education meeting on April 19, the district received a donation of $50,000 from the Harborfields Alumni and Community Educational Foundation to support the district’s Technology 2.0 initiative.

In an effort to prepare students to be successful in the 21st century, the district proposed a Technology 2.0 initiative that will give students the necessary tools to be more successful in the classroom. This includes expanding on Chromebooks with a one-to-one technology plan.

HACEF Vice President Karin Fey and HACEF Gala Co-chairs Joyce Johnston and Kelly Walker presented the check to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Francesco Ianni, Board President Nicholas Giuliano and board trustee Suzie Lustig during the meeting. The donation was made possible through funds raised at HACEF’s Mardi Gras Gala and HACEF’s Summer Camp program.

“I want to thank the whole community for getting together for this outstanding event that was so successful for our students, for our vision and ultimately for the entire technology plan that we are about to roll out,” said Dr. Ianni. “ This incredible donation of fifty-thousand dollars is just unbelievable. Thank you so much to the entire HACEF group for this amazing donation.”

Giuliano also extended his thanks to the organization for their support. “This is a major achievement for Harborfields,” he said. “Thank you so much. This will do so much good for us and for our educational programs.”
