Challenge

The New Orleans Public School District was one of the lowest performing in the country. Hurricane Katrina destroyed the city of institutions and infrastructure. What was salvaged from the wreckage of the storm is inappropriate in the new system. O. Perry Walker needs funds to renovate, replace antiquated books, and make changes necessary in the new educational environment allowing residents and their children to return home and return to school.

Solution

Funds raised to support O. Perry Walker High School fund renovations and purchase educational materials, electronic and presentation equipment, computers, books, and periodicals. These items are necessary for youth returning to school in New Orleans.

Long-Term Impact

This project allows families to return home and students to return to school, allowing for some semblance of normality after the trauma of Katrina. It also contributes to educational reform in one of the lowest-performing schools in the country.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Excel file (projdoc.xls).
