Dear AEF donors and community,

Despite the various challenges that our schools are facing this year, from district-wide issues to individual student needs, AEF is as committed as ever to enhancing public education in Arlington. To be honest,

In July, the Arlington Education Foundation (AEF) awarded a $12,000 grant to the Arlington Public Schools to fund a course on remote learning strategies for educators. Fifty-four Arlington educators are currently enrolled in the month-long course titled Developing Strategies for Online Teaching and Learning, offered by the Harvard School of Education.

The Arlington Education Foundation (AEF) has completed its spring grants cycle and has awarded a total of $10,310 in two grant categories, Innovations in Education and the Continuing Scholar Award.   “AEF is proud to continue its mission to support Arlington’s public school teachers and administrators despite the current school closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We look forward to schools re-opening and these exciting new opportunities getting underway at that time,” remarked Julia Schilling, AEF President.

Event attendees

Spirits were high at Arlington Education Foundation’s annual fundraiser on November 25th as all those gathered celebrated innovations in education within Arlington’s public schools. AEF Board members, supporters, guests and grant recipients shared a lively evening recognizing AEF’s work. The event raised $9,380 for the foundation. All funds raised will directly support AEF’s work supporting and advancing public education in Arlington.
