THE FOUNDATION | December 2020
Give the Gift of Education this Season
This year has been one of the most unique and challenging years The Foundation has seen yet. Thanks to donors like you, The Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools has been able to be flexible and responsive to the changing needs of students and teachers. We’ve been able to continue ensuring the success of our students by provide mentoring for at-risk students, innovative classroom grants, support for teachers, and technology for high-need students choosing distance learning.  
The need for help will continue in 2021. Please consider making a gift at or text SCPS to 243725. Our school district is stronger when we work together to support students and teachers, and we hope you'll join us!

Local Legislators Support SCPS
The Foundation received over $110,000 from the School District Education Foundation Matching Grant. These funds will be used to support a number of different education initiatives including: Grand for Great Ideas, Tools 4 Seminole Schools, College Tours, the new Laser Optics Physics Bus and the beloved MudWalk.
Since 2001, nearly $56 million dollars has been allocated by the Florida Legislature for the School District Education Foundation Matching Grant Program. Local education foundations leveraged more than double that amount in private matching dollars.

Thank you to our local legislators for their continued support of education in Seminole County Public Schools!

Thank you for being so SWEET to our students!
We are very excited to announce our TSIC Seminole student Destiny Ukachukwu is a Take Stock in Children Leaders 4 Life semi-finalist!
