How We Help Our Schools
Our mission is to preserve and encourage educational excellence in the Rim of the World Unified School District by strengthening relationships between our schools and communities and implementing a variety of programs that directly benefit our students and teachers in the classroom.
The Rim of the World Education Foundation strives to meet the needs of our students by funding innovative programs district-wide to all school sites. The Foundation directs donations toward many goals: technology, curriculum enhancement, resource renewal, staff development opportunities, the implementation of creative and innovative educational projects and the establishment of an endowment fund.
Among the programs that the Foundation offers is a series of “Rim Ed Grants” available to all personnel of the Rim of the World School District. This year we gave $20,000 in Rim Ed Grants to teachers and $15,000 to the AVID program at the middle school and high school. Historically, we have donated over $400,000 in mini-grants to the schools since the program’s inception.
You can click on our Rim Ed. Grant Winners 2012-2013 link on the menu bar to view some of the programs our “Rim Ed Grants” funded for teachers in the ROWUSD.
The Rim Education Foundation supports these programs with funds from two sources: fundraising and its endowment income. Never has community support been so critical in education. Changes in state funding and the rapid growth in our community have placed a greater burden of ensuring quality education on our shoulders. The Foundation encourages every community member to join in supporting continued growth in excellence our schools have previously enjoyed.
