Foundation for Public Education (FPE) was chartered to improve the
academic education for the South Panola School District. Today,
there are more than 4,800 public school foundations across the United
States. With today's budget cuts, decreased tax revenues and rising
expectations, the similar foundations are becoming popular in many school
districts across the nation.
The Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization comprised of local business leaders, parents, teachers, and concerned citizens. The Foundation offers many advantages to the local public school district and every dollar raised will go directly to the classroom. There is no paid staff. All work is done by concerned volunteers. Our goal is to improve student achievement by encouraging educational innovation and providing new and enhanced instructional equipment. This is accomplished through a variety of activities such as funding grants to teachers for curriculum enrichment programs.
With maximum involvement by both families and corporate citizens, The Foundation can continue to expand its role in funding the best and brightest ideas developed by our schools' staffs. We see it as an investment in our children, our schools, our community and our future.
