The Elmbrook Education Foundation supports the students at all 11 of the District's public schools through its Continuing Education Scholarship, Innovation Grant and Super Grant Programs. In addition, the Foundation has established an endowment held by the Waukesha County Community Foundation to provide a source of permanent support for Foundation programs.

The School District of Elmbrook was proud to host a visit by the Wisconsin Technology Initiative (WTI) this week. WTI representatives toured Dixon and Swanson Elementary Schools, where teachers showcased technology tools including ipads, SMART Boards, SMART Document Cameras and SMART Response Systems.
WTI provided a $50,000 technology grant to the district this year, which completed the Elmbrook Education Foundation's campaign to equip every elementary school classroom with a SMART Document Camera. SMART Document Cameras are able to project text from a book, three-dimensional objects, a student’s written work or a teacher’s original work onto a SMART Board at a magnified level for all students to see. Content and images displayed on the SMART Board can then be captured digitally to allow for group editing, saving for later use, or sharing across classrooms. Ultimately, the document camera supports a greater level of student engagement and increased understanding through its responsiveness to just-in-time classroom learning needs. It also supports the ability to deliver lessons to a large group that previously were only possible in a small group format.
The Elmbrook Education Foundation promotes educational excellence throughout all 11 Elmbrook Schools through its Educational Grant and Continuing Education Scholarship Programs. The Foundation’s primary areas of interest include Innovative Instruction, Teaching Excellence and Continuing Education. The Foundation administers funds on behalf of the community to support these areas of interest to help sustain the quality of the Elmbrook School District. These funds are often developed through honorariums for those that have had an impact on Elmbrook or to support the Foundation's efforts to sustain the quality of the community's public schools.
