Music, Science & Technology
IPSF provides support to a wide variety of curricular programs in IUSD, based on the district’s needs. Over the years, we have provided funding for science supplies, art, technology, among others, and we continue to work closely with IUSD to identify the programs that will be most impactful for Irvine students. Among the programs we are currently funding, Elementary Music and Naviance are two significant ways that IPSF touches every IUSD student.
Music for Elementary Students
In a time when most public school districts have eliminated school music programs, Irvine’s continue to thrive thanks to community support of IPSF.
IPSF fully funds the Primary Music Program provided to students in kindergarten through third grade. This program provides students with a solid foundation in musical concepts in a fun, supportive environment. Check out the Primary Music website for more information about this exciting program. IPSF also provides funding for instructional assistants for the 4th -6th grade Instrumental Music program, enabling a richer learning experience for students.
Naviance for Middle & High School Students
IPSF currently funds Naviance, a web-based counseling tool that supports personal, social and academic development as well as college and career planning. This tool is made available to IUSD students and their families beginning in middle school and is used continuously until graduation.
