The Education Foundation empowers teachers by recognizing and supporting innovative efforts and exemplary instruction. The Adopt-a-Grant program allows teachers to request tools and resources to supplement their students’ learning without having to go through traditional channels.


The Education Foundation is dedicated to providing effective opportunities for all students to pursue their full potential. Through the Adopt-a-Grant program, students are given access to resources, technology, and tools that the school district would otherwise not be able to procure.


The Education Foundation engages the community in order to assure a quality education for our leaders of tomorrow. Local businesses and community members have come together through the Foundation’s Adopt-a-Grant program and raised over $1 million in funding for teachers and students.
