A generous grant from Gilead Sciences is allowing us to address health & safety issues caused by the pandemic as well as embark on a three-year academic leadership initiative to strengthen science education for almost 11,000 District students. 

Through this partnership, the Education Foundation has been able to provide autonomous thermal scanners to all school sites and district facilities. As well, we are proud to fund a Science Teacher on Special Assignment for 3 years.

We are grateful to Gilead Sciences for being a valued partner in our local community.
