Overview

Self-reported by organization

For the 2011/2012 school year, the FTEF Board of Directors is focusing its fundraising efforts on the AVID program.  AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a structured, college preparatory system working directly with schools. 

 

AVID students are the middle of the road student, first in their family to attend college, historically underserved in four-year colleges, low income family or special circumstances.

 

The AVID program will help the student succeed in rigorous curriculum, will complete a rigorous college preparatory path, will enter mainstream activities of the school and will become educated and responsible participants and leaders  in a democratic society.

Funding Needs

Due to a substantial decrease in our endowment and in individual donations, we are unable to provide grants to teachers or support other programs. We are seeking dollars for operating expenses as well as funds to provide services to the teachers.   Due to a cut from the State of Indiana and a cap on property taxes, the school corporation is faced with closing two schools and reassigning students.  The corporation has eliminated busses for students to ride to school beginning with the fall of 2011.  This makes our work even more important and funding is critical.
