Washington Schools Foundation


An Advisory Committee will consider proposals, monitor the program, review procedures on an annual basis, and serve as a forum to generate potential ideas for projects. Strong faculty representation (two per division) will ensure credibility with the faculty at large; inclusion of the Superintendents, principals, and board members of the Foundation will ensure a broader institutional perspective.
