Who We Are

The East Mecklenburg High School Foundation seeks to enhance the educational program at East Mecklenburg High School by developing and supporting initiatives, projects, and programs that promote professional development, provide resources, improve the educational environment and otherwise support and encourage teachers, administrators, students, and parents.

WHAT WE DO

The Foundation provides funding for the teachers of East Meck through the All Star Teacher Initiative (ASTI).  Teachers apply for grants to attend conferences, purchase classroom technology or implement educational tools into their classrooms by writing proposals that include the project’s specifics and the anticipated impact the project will have on student learning.  A peer Grant Committee, consisting of teachers representing each of the academic content areas, reviews the proposals and determines which grants will be of the greatest benefit to East Meck. 

WHY WE DO IT

When you look back on your high school career, you remember the educators who made an impact on you. Whether it was A teacher who helped you grasp a concept that had eluded you or someone who advised a club that sparked your interest or a coach who saw your true potential, schools are filled with educators who inspire students everyday.

WHAT WE NEED

We need your help.  The Foundation allows East Meck to have programs and initiatives that would otherwise go unfunded. Please help us with a financial contribution to the Foundation and share the stories of our staff and students with your network of friends. Everyone benefits from a strong public high school and we are all responsible for the success of our schools.
