Educational Foundations   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Because demands on the educational system may exceed available public funding, the Board of Education recognizes that members of the community are often willing to make voluntary contributions that will provide needed additional funds for the school district. The Board therefore approves and encourages the creation of independent educational foundations to actively raise funds that will enhance educational opportunities for our pupils.

The Board desires to work cooperatively with these foundations in determining the purposes for which funds may be used to meet the changing needs of the district and its pupils.

The Board supports foundation allocations that serve all district schools equitably.
