Dean Witter Family Foundation Makes Awards to San Rafael City Schools
Posted 11/18/10

The Dean Witter Family Foundation has awarded grant funding to support educational endeavors in San Rafael City Schools.

At the invitation of the Dean Witter Family Foundation, Superintendent Michael Watenpaugh and Davidson Middle School principal Harriet MacLean met with the Foundation's Board of Directors.  Dr. MacLean provided members of the foundation board with an update specific to the GearUp for College Grant coordination at Davidson Middle School.  In 2009, the Dean Witter Family Foundation provided a $25,000 grant to Davidson in support of this program.  We are pleased to announce that for 2010, Davidson's $25,000 funding has been renewed.

The Foundation awarded $10,000 to San Rafael City Schools specifically targeted to enhance district communications and to develop and provide informational materials reflective of our schools and our District. Among the specified funding goals is to dispel many of the myths that appear to be perpetuated about district schools, programs and student achievement.

San Rafael City Schools greatly appreciates the support of the Dean Witter Family Foundation.
