Program 1

Educational programs

In addition to IPSF's fundraising efforts, the foundation helps to provide a number of educational programs to supplement the district's curriculum and to enhance student's educational experience. Following are a few of these exceptional programs: ACE - After-school Classroom Enrichment This program is dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable after school enrichment education to our public school children. Each semester, hundreds of children participate in these science, math, language, technology, study skills, athletics and fine arts classes. Over 14 schools offer ACE classes and rely on a dedicated group of over 100 community volunteers to reduce overhead. Last year, over 3400 children participated in this outstanding program. Summer School Each year, summer school classes for elementary and middle school students are offered by IUSD under the auspices of the foundation. Over 4,000 students participate in classes that are held at a number of schools sites throughout the city. Zero Period Physical Education By offering before-school physical education, IPSF enables middle school students to free up a period in their regular schedule for extra electives. Science Little League This innovative after-school program was designed to increase the amount of science instruction available to Irvine's elementary students. IUSD Science Specialists develop the curriculum to emphasize a hands-on approach to learning that conforms with state standards. Fall and spring sessions of this program attract over 2,000 students annually. In addition, IPSF has several community involvement programs that serve to directly connect our supportors with the impact that we are making in Irvine's schools: PARTNERS IN EDUCATION - A dedicated group of annual contributors to the foundation Innovative Teaching Award Program - Community funding awarded directly to teachers and their classrooms STUDENT HONORS CONCERT - Annual event featuring 600 of Irvine"s finest music students INSTRUMENT RENTAL PROGRAM - 1000 musical instruments rented to students annually

The ACE program provides high-quality, enrichment classes after school at Irvine school sites. Each year, students participate in hands-on science, theater, language, technology, sports, and fine arts classes through ACE. Scholarships are offered to children of limited financial means so that no child is turned away from participating in the ACE Program. All classes are taught by paid instructors and teachers, with over 150 community volunteers working as site coordinators to reduce the costs of the program and promote parent involvement. This program also provides CASHEE and/or Algebra tutorial.
