Progress to Goal

We are getting closer to the end of the school year and to our $1.5M goal.  Make a difference by supporting innovation and educational excellence. Click on Donate to make your contribution today.


Once upon a time it was a common refrain from parents "get off that computer and do your homework!" Today, the internet has opened up as a place for learning and collaboration, not just games and social media.  The educational opportunities are limitless, but students need access and guidance to take advantage of these opportunities.

Your donation funds classroom cloud connectivity for all students. The Foundation made a $300K financial commitment which the district leveraged to apply for a grant from Google.  Google matched the MVLA Foundation grant which allowed the high schools to accelerate its technology roll-out. Finally, the Tides Foundation joined and helped to fund charging stations as well.

The two schools are piloting slightly different programs this year. At Los Altos High, students can bring their own device (BYOD), or check out a Chromebook for the school year.  At Mountain View High, Chromebooks are currently kept in the English and Social Studies classrooms for use during class time. Next year, MVHS will move toward the BYOD model.

"Learning in the Cloud" will help all of our students gain needed 21st century skills so they hit the ground running in college and the work force.

If you missed our March 31st Showcase event, watch this video of our students and teachers using digital devices and cloud learning in the classroom!

What People Say About the Foundation

"With the foundation's investment in lower class sizes for freshman students, the transition from middle to high school is much smoother... As a result of our foundation's investment in our counselors and College and Career Centers, more of our students are gaining admission into their first choice colleges."    
- Dr. Barry Groves, MVLA Superintendent

"The Foundation has allowed all three high schools to maintain the best possible learning environment for all of our students... We would not be the schools that we are today without the support of the MVLA Foundation."     - Wynne Satterwhite, LAHS Principal
