  • About

    The Crockett Foundation has positively impacted the lives of thousands of children since its inception in 2002. It?s after school programs focus on Math, Reading, Health and Technology for Elementary and Middle School students and has helped over 500 students since inception.

    The after-school program ?School is Cool? for Middle school students is centered around the ABC?s-Attendance, Behavior, and Course performance concept, and sets itself apart by providing students with iPads, purchased by the Crockett Foundation, to enable learning via technology. Upon successful compleyion of the program, students are awarded their own iPads, iPods, or Kindles. The goal is to keep them reading year round while being technologically savvy.

    Peer tutoring is heavily emphasized, as high school volunteers and college interns are brought in to work one-on-one with students in math and reading as well as teachers who specialize in reading, math, and technology. The success of the School is Cool program is made possible by a grant received from Community Foundation of Broward for it?s School is Cool initiative. The initiative funds $1.2 million in grants to 10 projects in the Broward County area that aim to strengthen the skills of middle shool students in order to boost high school graduation rates. The goal of the Community Foundation?s School is Cool initiative is to raise graduation rates in Broward County from the current 78 percent level in 2013 to 90 percent in the next five years.
