We are a group of parents, teachers, staff, business and community members who have come together to ensure that every child in our district has access to quality education, regardless of zip code. We believe that all children are “our children.” Current state funding of public schools is not adequate to prepare all students for a global economy. We strive to make up the difference.
Imagine if… every elementary school student had access to enriching art, science, and robotics; every middle school student learned a second language, and every high school student could take all of the classes he/she needs, from AP Computer Science to Construction Management.
The MDUSD Education Foundation will award grant funds initially to District and its authorized schools. Funds will be solicited via personal contact, email and social media outreach, website, and social events. This will include cash and in-kind donations. Thanks to a generous initial donation of $30,000, elementary school arts opportunities were made a reality spring 2018.
Directors, appointed advisers, committee chairs and committee members shall receive no compensation other than standard, pre-approved reimbursement for routine expenses. The Foundation will have no employees, but will contract for services with a certified public accountant and legal counsel as necessary, and/or with outside service providers.
