Rim of the World Education Foundation, (ROTWEF), NEEDS YOU…parents, educators, and businesses, to work with us to help provide continuing support of programs and services for our students and encourage educational excellence in the Rim of the World Unified School District (ROTWUSD).
ROTWEF is focused on supporting the following programs:
Rim Education Grants: This program focuses on providing funding to individual classrooms/teachers for innovative and creative programs not available through traditional district funding streams. A competitive process each year funds approximately $20,000 to classrooms and teachers primarily in the ESTEM (Environmental, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program areas and the Arts.
Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Program: Since 2009, funding has been provided to increase college-going rates for students who traditionally have not had access to higher education. AVID is a highly successful national model that is currently serving 105 middle and high school students in our Rim School District. Starting in September, 2015, AVID instructional strategies will be incorporated in the 6th grade.
Regional Occupational Program (ROP): Beginning in 2015, the Foundation is expanding its focus on college and career readiness to include the Regional Occupational Program (ROP) that provides a variety of career education programs to prepare high school students for employment and/or advanced education and training
Through its various fund raising efforts, ROTWEF has contributed over $450,000 to the ROTWUSD, Declining enrollment has strapped the district from continuing to fully support these essential programs. It is important that these programs will be continually funded. ROTWEF collaborates with an array of partners in our communities. Please join our organization and serve as an Education Ambassador in one of the categories listed. Because we are a volunteer operated organization, all funds go directly to our classrooms and students.
