Why a Foundation?
Funding for public education is becoming increasingly limited by the constraints of Act 1 and state legislature. While continuing to look for efficiencies within the budget, the district recognizes the importance of looking for outside funding streams and community initiatives to help fund programs that extend beyond the budget. As a community partner, WEOF has the opportunity to support the school district with an alternative funding stream enhance and expand innovative programs for students.
