Corporate and Community Sponsors

 

The Bethpage Academy of Technology has developed a series of strategic partnerships with corporate and community sponsors. The contributions have varied- internships, hardware, guest speakers, offsite visitations, staff development, and curriculum assistance. The Bethpage Schools have returned the favor with use of facilities, demonstrations of technologies for other school districts and access to staff for surveys/focus groups. We appreciate the generosity of our sponsors and look forward to our continued relationships. If your company would like to participate in a partnership with us, please contact John DeTommaso, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Technology.

 

Cablevision Systems Corporation has been a major benefactor of the Bethpage Schools. The partnership has developed over the past four years.
