Kent County Superintendent, Dr. Karen Couch, recently spoke to the Mid-Shore Community Foundation’s Kent County Advisors about the new technology initiative as well as other trends in the public school system.
The Board of Education recently established the Kent County Public Schools Technology Fund of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation. The Fund will support initiatives, adopted by the Kent County Board of Education, to bring technological advances to students in Kent County Public Schools.
The Mid-Shore Community Foundation will manage the Fund and coalesce philanthropic resources from the private sector. In addition to the financial benefits, the Foundation hopes to engage the community in the process of improving its local schools.
Dr. Couch also reported that Kent County Public School System’s 2014 School Progress Index (SPI) had improved to 13th as compared to the 24 State of Maryland Public School Systems. Kent County Public School System is ranked 3rd in comparison to the 9 Eastern Shore Districts.
Donations to the Kent County Public Schools Technology Fund should be directed to the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, 102 East Dover Street, Easton, MD 21601
