Background Information

The Foundation for Excellence in Education in Easton (F.E.E.E.) is a non-profit organization that raises funds for the benefit of the students in the Easton, MA, Public Schools. We are a citizen board formed in 1989 to explore ways to supplement or expand the educational experiences available to Easton's school children at all levels. Our primary focus has been to make available, to all students, access to computer and information technology.

Since our inception we have raised over $300,000 to purchase computers, printers, and software for all of our schools. We have upgraded memory in existing computers to make them capable of running the latest software, and we have sponsored training for teachers and staff in the use and instructional applications of computer technology. Our teacher grant program has, among other things, converted local history photos to CD for student use, funded a literacy resource at the elementary level, and purchased a quilting CD for student use. Our fund-raising efforts made possible the purchase of rolling multimedia computer labs for each of the elementary schools. With your continued support, we will purchase additional computer hardware and software and award additional grants as we try to maximize and equalize students' access to computer technology.

The following provide details about our major purchases for the past two years:

These purchases also enabled systems that had been in the Labs to be redeployed to other schools and classrooms, including the elementary schools.
