Our Mission:

‚ÄčEmpower all Waukee District students to achieve their aspirations by enhancing their educational experience.

The Waukee Community Schools Foundation supports the school district in 3 primary areas:

  • Classroom grants to support the innovative programs and capital needs of our rapidly growing school district

  • Funding for professional development and continuing education for our teachers to inspire the highest level of education for our students

  • “Funding Your Future” Scholarships for our graduating seniors

The Waukee School District grows by about 500-600 students each year. Many Iowa school districts have about 500 students total! So, you could say that Waukee grows by an entire school district each and every year!

In Iowa, state funding for public education is determined by the previous year’s enrollment. That means Waukee is educating 500-600 students every year with zero public funding. That’s where the Foundation steps in to assist teachers and educators with innovative learning tools and opportunities to continue educating our children at the highest level. We strive to make an impact on your child’s educational experience.

Our Board of Directors meets bi-monthly. Future meeting dates in 2019 are:

  • June 17th (Strategic Planning Meeting)
  • August 14
  • October 16
  • December 18
