Editor's note: The following news release was submitted by the Los Alamitos Education Foundation.
An average of 78% students graduated from high schools across California last school year. Locally, 99% of Los Alamitos students graduate high school. What’s the difference? Our outstanding teachers and District Office, of course, as well as involved parents. However, the Los Alamitos Unified School District has one more tool in their education toolbox: LAEF – Los Alamitos Education Foundation.
LAEF was established to supplement the Los Alamitos Unified School District (LAUSD). Our mission is to generate significant, sustainable and allocable resources to support LAUSD and to deliver opportunities for every student to connect to the 4 A’s: Academics, Athletics, Arts, & Activities. LAEF provides both significant funding to the district in critical areas impacting all students as well as educational enrichment opportunities for every student.
Donations from the community enable LAEF to assist in providing funds to have targeted teachers in every elementary school in the district and provide specific fundraising support for special projects. We offer year-round academic and enrichment programs and provide scholarships for qualifying families.
If your child attends school in this district, you will have already received a pamphlet in the mail that describes what you can do for LAEF, what LAEF does for students and the district at large, and what YOUR help can do for LAEF. Even if you don’t have a child attending school in the district, you are still able to donate to LAEF. The support of the community is what makes LAEF possible and what helps make LAUSD one of the most successful districts in the State of California, making our community a great place to be. Donate today!
