The Kaiser Woodland Schools Foundation supports interactive, cutting-edge Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) instruction for the students at Kaiser and Woodland elementary schools.

 

The Foundation’s supplementary science programming is made possible by generous community support: parents, teachers, administrators, business leaders, private grants, and science advocates. Learn what you can do to get involved.

RESULTS

Kaiser’s fifth grade students participate in the state’s annual STAR testing in science. Every year since the Foundation began supporting and supplementing the Kaiser and Woodland STEM curriculum, more than three-quarters of Kaiser’s fifth grade students have scored proficient or above on the STAR test.

 

The Foundation is committed to supporting and advancing our schools’ rich history of excellence in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.

Why do you need a foundation? How is it different from a PFO?

Many of the school districts throughout California are struggling financially to ensure the best education for their students. Organizations like PTA’s, PFO’s, and Foundations are formed to supplement the educational needs of their students.  A foundation adds an extra arm of support to the existing PFO and without the restrictions present in a PTA.  Funds raised by the Foundation in a single year can be invested over multiple years to fund larger projects, while still being flexible enough to address immediate needs. Learn more about why the Foundations was started.

Can I donate money to a specific project?

Some events are specifically designed to raise money for a specific need. If you would like to make a direct donation to a specific Foundation project please let us know and we make sure to allocate it accordingly.
