ACCESS Academy Foundation
The ACCESS Academy Foundation bridges the gap in public school funding and provides much-needed staffing that helps to improve our students’ educational outcomes. Additional staff– teachers, specialists, and educational assistants – can only be funded through the school foundation.
The Foundation is run by parent volunteers and is an affiliate of the Fund for PPS (the Portland Public Schools Foundation). One-third of funds raised above $10,000 go to the PPS Equity Fund to help schools that are less able to raise funds close the achievement gap.
Thanks to contributions last year, we were able to significantly increase our librarian’s hours and hire additional office staff. Our goal this year is to raise enough money to maintain these positions and fund an additional language teacher and hire a music teacher.
