Why is the Foundation necessary?
With pressure growing to increase academic achievement but not to increase taxes, we supplement existing programs and services in the schools and provide funding through generous donors.
What is the purpose of the Foundation?
The Foundations provides "tools for learning" and funds programs outside of the school budget that support excellence in education. The Foundation will generate a supplemental, on-going funding source to support local education initiatives that have proven to achieve results or have the potential to benefit students and teachers.
Everyone. Students will be provided with special programs and learning materials that would not normally be available. Teachers are awarded grants to help them enrich classroom knowledge and use innovative learning aids. Businesses share their resources and reap the benefits of competent, career oriented students who will later enter the workforce. Community members gain confidence in our education system through their involvement with the schools and students. A strong school district also raises property values.
