SUPPLEMENTAL FUNDING IS CRITICAL!
Good schools mean good communities, higher property values, and lower crime rates. We live in an exceptional area filled with exceptional people. Working together we can continue to offer the children in our community the exceptional educational opportunities that they deserve!
Our schools are very good. Together, we can make them even better!
In the 2012-13 school year, your donations to the Foundation allowed us to grant $126,366 to fund certified PE, Library, Technology to the benefit of every child in the district. The Foundation’s Tech Up! initiative funded the completion of wireless networking to reach every student in every classroom and a full week of training for our first 20 EdTech teachers.
For the 2013-14 year, the Foundation has committed over $140,000 to again help fund PE, Library and EdTech across the district. The newly created EdTech Teacher Coach position is entirely funded by your donations to the Foundation. This critical new position allows our teachers ongoing access to training and advice as technology becomes more pervasive in our classrooms.
THE PROGRAMS WE FUND ARE APPLIED EQUITABLY ACROSS THE DISTRICT AND ARE PROGRAMS THAT MUST BE FUNDED AT THE DISTRICT LEVEL.
Thank you to all our volunteers and donors who are doing so much to make our schools the best they can be!
ABOUT THE FOUNDATION
The Buckeye Education Foundation is a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit collaboration of volunteer parents, educators and community members focused on providing supplemental funding to the six elementary schools and two middle schools within the Buckeye Union School District in El Dorado County, California.
The district-wide Foundation was formed in 2009 to address inadequate funding for schools at the state level and to promote academic excellence as a core value of our community.
The Foundation is 100% volunteer staffed. The generous donations of volunteer time and community giving allows the Foundation to meet its goal of helping the 4,700 students in our Buckeye public schools receive the highest quality education possible.
