This week during our club meeting, we had the honor of hearing from Lorna Durant and Laura Ulaszek of the Livonia Public Schools Education Foundation. They shared the foundation’s mission and a few of the initiatives they have been involved with. The foundation worked to provide hot spots for all LPS students, and chrome books and laptops during the pandemic so students who did not have access to those items could participate in online learning.
Another initiative of the LPS Foundation is setting up bank accounts for Kindergarten students to ease the way towards a savings program for college.
I know the Livonia Public Schools does an outstanding job providing the “meat and potatoes” of the children’s educational needs. The LPS Foundation oftentimes provides the “Sauces and Seasonings” that make the learning experience quite a bit tastier.
