Our Mission is Simple:
To sustain the tradition of outstanding schools in Lake Oswego.
How do we do this? By reducing the student teacher ratio by hiring additional teachers. Foundation funds pay for additional teachers the District could not otherwise afford. All funds raised by the Foundation are used to support teaching positions and reduce class size. The Foundation has successfully placed teachers in classrooms every year since 1993.
Support from the Foundation is a critical component of the school district’s ability to lower class sizes in the core curriculum subjects and has been critical to the district’s ability to meet community expectations for the education of our students. It has kept us afloat during periods of severe downsizing. As we look optimistically toward a period of building back, Foundation efforts will continue to be essential in preparing our children for the highly competitive and evolving world ahead.
