ECU donates 33 computers to Unified
“We were very sorry to hear about the burglaries that happened in some of the Racine Unified schools this fall,” said Educators Credit Union President Eugene Szymczak, “We understand the importance of having good technology and equipment to help maximize student learning. We are very strong believers that a strong education system is the key to success and growth in our communities. It is our hope that this donation will help make a difference in student learning and encourage greater support to student education in our community.”
"The donation is an incredible example of community support and caring about student’s learning,” said Dr. James Shaw, RUSD superintendent.
RUSD has put tightened security into place at district buildings, and the Racine Police Department now patrols schools more vigorously. An arrest was made on Oct. 20, but so far those responsible for the thefts of about 70 computers have not been apprehended.
