The Public Education Foundation
The Public Education Foundation, created in 1991, has worked with the goal of improving public education in Southern Nevada by effecting transformational change in teaching, learning, and education leadership. The Foundation believes in working collaboratively with educators to ensure that the students of Southern Nevada not only succeed in the classroom but also in life.
The Foundation serves the 318,140 students of the Clark County School District and their families. Over 90 percent of students at the host schools qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and more than 48 percent are English language learners. The Foundation’s goals in implementing Toyota Family Learning at host campuses across the district include connecting families to resources and providing opportunities for Family Service Learning that engage both children and adults.
Toyota Family Learning is active in these schools:
- Crestwood Elementary School
- Dean Petersen Elementary School
- Ruby Thomas Elementary School
- Sunrise Acres Elementary School
- Paul Culley Elementary School
- JT McWilliams Elementary School
- Matt Kelly Elementary School
NCFL has been working with The Foundation since it was awarded Toyota Family Literacy funding for two-generation programming in 2008.
