The SLPS Foundation has been working alongside the District since 1997 to ensure students have equitable access to the resources they need to pursue their dreams and aspirations.
College Specialists, funded by the Foundation, make a huge difference for first-generation college goers with the guidance they and their families need to pave their future paths.
It costs $2,500 per year to support one student in school-based therapy. These therapists help students dealing with stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, COVID-19, and more.
It costs $1,000 a month, or $12,000 a year to send just one young child through our outstanding early childhood education classes, setting them on a vastly different life trajectory.
Principal quality accounts for 10–25% of a school’s academic achievement. There are 68 schools across the District, totaling over 150 school leaders.
Over 11,000+ devices AND 6,000+ hotspots have been purchased to ensure each child can engage in learning from wherever they are.
