ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

In 2009, the Clarion-Limestone Area School District developed a Citizens Advisory Committee. The Chairperson, Mrs. Beth Lyle, asked the School Board for authority to establish a foundation to benefit public education in the Clarion-Limestone Area School District. The School Board granted permission and a Foundation Committee was established. Mrs. Rebecca Reed and Ms. Melissa Daugherty were appointed to work on the project and develop the mission of the new organization. The Clarion-Limestone Area Scholastic Foundation was born.



THE FOUNDATION'S MISSION STATEMENT

The Clarion-Limestone Area Scholastic Foundation supports and fosters enhancement activities and initiatives that improve the academic and overall well-being for kindergarten through 12th grade students in the Clarion-Limestone Area School District.



THE FOUNDATION'S GOALS

To promote the importance of education excellence in our community
To encourage community involvement in our schools
To support student programs that will improve the performance of the Clarion-Limestone Area School District



THE FOUNDATION'S PURPOSE

The Clarion-Limestone Area Scholastic Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, vested with enhancing the education of the Clarion-Limestone Area School District students. The Foundation does this by awarding grants to teachers for worthy projects that are not able to be funded by the school district and by supporting other projects that directly benefit students. The grants contribute to innovative and creative teaching, thereby ensuring the fulfillment of the Foundation's mission.
