Interested in serving as a Foundation Director?
The District 205 Foundation for Educational Excellence is looking for a few good men and women who would like to help make a difference for all students in District 205. What better way to give back to the community in which you are raising your children than to work with like-minded individuals to raise funds for innovative and supportive programs?
Board members serve a three-year term with renewal options and work with other dedicated volunteers in supporting educational programs, including the annual Thiems Grants and the Study Skills Program in place at all K-8 schools.
