News Release - February 15, 2021

The Education Foundation of South Brunswick Township, Inc. announced a capital grant of $17,325 to purchase document cameras for the South Brunswick School District.

Previous grants, through the Foundation’s Spark of Innovation program, have been used to purchase document cameras for individual teachers.  With this capital grant the District will be able to purchase 175 cameras to be used in grades K thru 12 classrooms.

The use of document cameras within the District has proven to be a great instructional tool.  "We have found that this year, especially because of remote teaching, our need for document cameras has grown substantially and there is a need for use in all of K-12.  Teachers have expressed the need to display material, model science labs, model art projects, and interactively write alongside their students.  Document cameras have proven to do all this and more," said Jenn Diszler - Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum, Instruction and Administration, South Brunswick School District

"In a nutshell, this grant will afford teachers in grades K-12 an interactive way to engage students both in school and remotely," Jenn Diszler said.   "The Foundation will be contributing to the overall success and quality of teaching in SB."

Through its mission, to promote and provide educational support and opportunities through innovative programs and projects, the Foundation has donated over $232,000 to the South Brunswick School District including capital grants totaling over $58,000.
