About this Campaign
Built in 1889, Francis Scott Key School is the oldest continuously operating school building in the School District of Philadelphia. Unfortunately, it is also one of the few schools in the district that is not yet modernized. Although we have many strengths at Key School, we are lacking in the technology that is afforded to many other schools in our school district. We are located in the heart of diverse South Philadelphia and our student population includes over 55% English Language Learners (ELLs).
Less than a third of the classrooms in our building have working air conditioning units. Due to the old infrastructure of the building, during the warm summer months classrooms without AC units can reach up to temperatures of over 90 degrees! We need help providing safe learning environments for our children by installing air conditioning units in all classrooms. When temperatures in our school reach such extreme temperatures it greatly disrupts instructional time and negatively impacts the health of our students. Currently none of our Kindergarten classrooms have AC units. Please help us improve our little ones transition into elementary school by helping us fund the purchase and installation of 3 AC units for our kindergarten classrooms.
