Keep our schools strong!
As a result of recent state-level cutbacks for our public schools, DSEF’s mission now includes raising additional money to help our school district bridge the gap and maintain academic competitiveness – regardless of state funding levels. These measures will help cover expenses ordinarily paid for by state dollars.
The Foundation’s highest fundraising priority this year is to restore the 2012 state funding levels in order to keep excellence and academic competitiveness in our schools.
With the start of the new school year, the Foundation is launching a bold awareness campaign to inform ISD families about the long-term risks associated with on-going state cutbacks. Foundation representatives will be available at school functions across the district in the months ahead to talk about these pressing issues and accept donations to bridge the gap.
DSEF is asking everyone in the community to help raise $260 per student to bridge the $1.23 million state funding gap for 2012-13. That amounts to $22 a month per student – less than the cost of a ticket to a UT or A&M football game. Donate now!
