Academic Enhancement: The Community Partnership is committed to supporting new and innovative ways to enhance academic achievement and to provide additional instructional tools needed to help Egg Harbor Township students reach their academic potential and pursue higher education goals.

Utilizing grant funds, the Community Partnership provided funding needed to pilot a hands-on equestrian academic program with Atlantic Riding Center for the Handicapped (ARCH) for at-risk students. Additionally, when Egg Harbor Township High School found itself in a budget quandary, the Community Partnership assisted by helping to pay the cost for students taking Advanced Placement (AP) tests. The Community Partnership also funded Alder Avenue Middle Schoolís Renaissance Program, a goal-oriented academic and character education incentive program for students and supported the attendance of Egg Harbor Township Teachers of the Year at the annual County celebratory luncheon.

Technology Upgrades: This initiative supports the districtís goal of preparing all students for the 21st Century by providing learning environments that include technology-enriched large group multimedia instructional settings in every classroom with video/data projection and appropriate sound systems.

Recognizing the need for an Alumni Website for Egg Harbor Township graduates to reconnect with their former classmates and teachers, the Community Partnership is hosting Egg Harbor Township School Districtís new Alumni website

Additionally, the Community Partnership purchased interactive classroom technology for Alder Avenue Middle School that makes classroom learning more fun for students and gives teachers the immediate feedback needed to gauge and measure student retention of subject material, thus determining the need for further review of material or the confidence to move on to the next lesson.

Extra-Curricular Activities: Research shows that children involved in extra-curricular activities, including athletics and the arts, are more likely to graduate from high school, attend college, and develop stronger critical thinking, self discipline, and problem-solving skills.

Grant funds have allowed the Community Partnership to provide a percussion music program in 2011 and 2012 for students at Dr. Joyanne D. Miller Elementary School. The Percussion Workshop program offers students who would otherwise be unable to afford to purchase or rent a musical instrument, the opportunity to experience fun, hands-on instrument instruction in a non-traditional classroom setting. The Community Partnership also provided lacrosse safety equipment and uniforms to help establish varsity and junior varsity boysí and girlsí lacrosse programs at Egg Harbor Township High School and a Tennis Starter Kit for the districtís after-school program.

Land Acquisition: Planning for the future is a major concern. To meet the explosive student population growth needs, the Community Partnership for Egg Harbor Township Schools, Inc. will use Land Acquisition donations to purchase land that will be used for future educational and recreational facilities for the public school children.

Capital Projects: Tax-deductible donations made to the Community Partnership for Egg Harbor Township Schools, Inc. will empower donors to literally build the future. Funds will be used to build new Egg Harbor Township public schools and/or renovate and expand existing academic buildings, facilities and grounds.

Proceeds from two Community Partnership-hosted dinner dances held in 2008 and 2009 were used to fund the high schoolís new LED Marquee Sign project.
