Educational Foundation   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Because demands on the educational system 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 an independent educational foundation to actively raise funds that will enhance educational opportunities for our students.

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

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