With the many years of budget cuts in the schools, the Ashland Schools Foundation has concentrated our funding on core educational support.
“I’d hate to think that I might be aiming for less out of life if I wasn’t surrounded by such passionate teachers, and given so many opportunities along the way.” – Susannah, AHS Student
We believe that the close relationship between a teacher and a student is key to a student’s success in education. By committing our funding to teachers, we are able to keep class sizes to a level that personal relationships are possible. We know, from asking students, that great teachers have made a big difference in their education:
“Looking back over my years in the Ashland School District I am so thankful for the many impacts I have had from specific teachers, educational programs, and academic experiences. I don’t think I would be in the position I am in today, on my way to college with confidence, if it weren’t for these positive influences. Thank you for being a part of my educational success.” - Savannah, AHS Senior
With the support of the community, Ashland has been able to put students first, holding onto many arts, science and advanced placement courses – but unfortunately we have lost many other choices throughout the K-12 system. Once a program is cut, it is much more difficult to restore. Great teachers move on – ideas disappear.
In the 2013-14 school year, ASF gave $187,000 for Education Support throughout the seven schools. We would love to do more. Our total granting goal for this year is $225,000 - we need your support to reach this attainable amount. Please give generously.
Remember: We are only limited by the amount of donations we are given.
