Comcast supports mathematics through BEF Extended Day

Three of our Beaverton middle school are benefitting from an investment from one of our long time supporters, Comcast. Comcast is empowering teachers and students with its donation of $12,500 for math technology and support.

Cooperation between the Beaverton Education Foundation (BEF) and Comcast enables enhanced after school math programs, including the purchase and use of Math IXL, a self-paced mathematics tool. Students at Five Oaks, Highland Park, and Mountain View Middle Schools will benefit this year and into the future as they build a strong math foundation for the future.

David Nielanik, principal at Highland Park Middle School is thrilled to have the funds to enhance its Math Club. “Since the first of December, our core math teachers report that students have worked 550 hours on IXL, on their own time, and completed 123,683 problems. This donation has been one of the ladders to help us succeed in math. We are taking steps for students to feel at ease with math and having this technology and teacher availability is a huge plus in our after school program.”

Theressa Dulaney Comcast Vice President for External Affairs, commented on the positive nature of the after school math programs. “Bridging technology and math helps improve a student’s math competency. We are thrilled to be a part of the Beaverton community and support the schools through the Foundation,” stated Dulaney.

As a result of this Comcast donation, teachers will be available to provide personal attention and additional learning time for students who need extra assistance in mastering the fundamentals of mathematics. Comcast has been a BEF Community Partner since 2005 with investments in students of $137,500.
