Overview

Self-reported by organization

The NA Foundation's goals in the past several years have been to fund and/or appropriately disseminate student scholarships and provide grants to enable a variety of innovative programs in the North Allegheny School District. In 2011-2012, the NA Foundation refocused its goals to address the needs of the North Allegheny School District as a whole. During these difficult economic times when state and federal funding is decreasing for public schools, the NA Foundation has been working to generate monies to maintain and supplement existing District programs as identified by the Superintendent of Schools. All funds raised through a number of efforts in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 were designated for technology in elementary and middle school classrooms. The student scholarships program has also continued.

BIO

The Executive Director is the Superintendent of Schools for the North Allegheny School District. Prior to accepting this role at North Allegheny, Dr. Gualtieri was the Superintendent of Schools at the East Hampton Union Free School District in East Hampton, New York, for eight years. He was also an active member in the very successful Educational Foundation that supported that school district.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"A donation to the NA Foundation is an investment in the lives of the children who attend our schools and the future we will all share -- a future our children must be prepared to shape and lead. The North Allegheny School District is nationally recognized for the excellent achievement of its students in academics, the arts, and athletics. The richness and rigor of its academic offerings, the quality and diversity of its programs in music and visual arts, and the state-wide reputation of its athletic programs draw families into the District and keep property values in the community high. All of this is at risk if new solutions for funding, along with innovative efficiency models, are not identified. The NA Foundation is proud to be working toward the goal of preserving the best of the best for our children in the North Allegheny School District."
