Educational Foundation   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Because demands on the educational system exceed available public funding, the Governing Board 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.

Note: Foundations have been set up in California for a great variety of purposes: to provide instructional resources, sustain arts, music and/or computer programs, provide graduating students with scholarships and/or loans, and to develop programs which meet new educational needs. Although the Board can either accept or reject any gifts that are offered, the following optional paragraph is intended to provide flexibility and advance Board participation in determining the purposes for which funds will be used.

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.

(cf. 3290 - Gifts, Grants and Bequests)

(cf. 9140 - Board Representatives)

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