The DSEF was formed and granted its non-profit status in the summer of 2004. The Foundation encourages high academic standards and excellence in teaching by underwriting new and/or innovative programs that, due to budget limitations, the school is unable to fund. The Foundation is solely dependent on tax-deductible donations from the community. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Membership is drawn from the community -at- large. The Dansville Schools Superintendent serves an ex-officio member. The building administrators serve as administrative advisers to the Foundation.
The Dansville Schools Education Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the quality of academic life by enhancing or initiating those programs which are not or will not normally be funded by the Dansville School System. While the Foundation is autonomous in organization and responsibility, it is its clear intention to pursue the above goals in close cooperation with the Dansville School Board, administrators, teachers, students, alumni and community.
The Dansville Schools Education Foundation Annual Dinner & Auction is moving to November. Save the date: November 8, 2014. For more information regarding the Foundation, see our Facebook page or contact us by email.
