The general intent of an educational foundation is to provide funding for activities that are beyond the scope of traditionally supported school district activities. The Woodland Park School District Foundation, which was incorporated in 2005, is a separate entity from the school district. According to their mission statement, the foundation supplements the district’s educational programs by partnering with the community to provide students and staff with opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable.
