More than 22,000 students walk through the doors of Vancouver Public Schools each day. From tiny tots with special needs to elementary, middle and high school students, they attend 35 different schools. Forty-five percent qualify for subsidized meals, (used as a measure of poverty) and in the elementary schools within Vancouver city limits, that figure jumps to 62 percent.
The mission of the Vancouver School District Foundation is to bring together the resources of the community to supplement and enhance student achievement.
The Foundation exists to assure that the basic needs of at-risk students are met and to enrich the living and learning of all students in the Vancouver School District.
