The North Central Education Foundation was formed in November 2008. Its primary purpose is to support and assist the educational and training activities of the four counties (Chelan, Douglas, Grant and Okanogan) that form the North Central ESD 171 region. The Foundation is also for the purpose of fostering collaboration between school, business and government agencies, assisting other organizations for educational purposes and providing scholarships and services to schools.
See the attached North Central Education Foundation brochure for more information about our Foundation and teacher grant fund.
We know how hard teachers work, many times putting in extra time, spending their own money to purchase enhancements for their classrooms, and at the same time impacting many, many lives. Often they have no idea how much they touch the lives of the students with whom they spend time every day. Teachers Make a Difference began 16 years ago, and we our 15th book of stories about teachers written by their students has just gone to print. These books are sold each year to fund scholarships for students who plan to be teachers, so it provides wonderful continuity. To order a book from the selections below, please contact Eldene Wall at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 509.665.2629. See Teachers Make a Difference for more detail.
