As a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the Evergreen Public Schools, the ESDF partners with our community to bridge the basic needs gap, foster innovative and engaging learning experiences and maximize opportunities to ensure that all students have access to a world-competitive education.
Evergreen Public Schools Challenge
Evergreen Public Schools is the largest school district in Southwest Washington, with 26,644 students, attending 35 schools supported by 1659 teachers. This growing population is increasingly diverse: more than one in three participate in free or reduced lunch programs; one in four students is an ethnic minority, one in eight require special education and one in twelve need transitional language support for English as there are 52 languages spoken within the district. Providing an excellent education that engages all of these students and prepares them for successful lives requires support beyond what the State funds.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Given sufficient resources, every student, every teacher and every school can succeed and prosper. The Foundation steps in to fill the gap between what the District can provide and what the students need. We need your help! Please consider Donating, Volunteering, or Sponsoring this year.
