Why is the Foundation important?

The Foundation distributes funds for special projects and programs that provide our students with educational opportunities above and beyond the standard curriculum. The Foundation provides an ongoing and dependable funding source for additional programs and resources not covered by budget dollars. As you can see from the above graphic, Education is the basis for which students, and therefore communities, thrive. The Foundation provides an opportunity for all citizens to be involved in our children's education.
