Everett Public Schools Foundation
All learners in the Everett Public Schools have the resources they need to achieve success.
We build community support and invest resources to inspire innovation, excellence and achievement for all learners in the Everett Public Schools.
The Everett Public Schools Foundation was established as Citizens for Everett Public Schools Association in February, 1985 with the central goal "to support the educational programs of the Everett Public Schools." The organization was initiated by Dr. Rudy Johnson, then superintendent of the Everett Public Schools, and a group of interested citizens. Original founders included Bruce Lamus, President; Don Rider, Vice President, Shirley Level, Secretary, Myron Scougale, and Treasurer and Board Members, James Langus, Leroy Stave, Shirley Vandermeer, Nancy Weiss and Sam White. The foundation gained its non-profit status on May 23, 1985. The name was officially changed to the Everett Public Schools Foundation, February 4, 1992. As a community-based, non-profit foundation,the Foundation has an autonomous working relationship with the district. We are partners in education, maintaining a mutual strategic direction.
The Everett Public School Foundation Board of Directors oversees the annual administration of the foundation. The Board of Directors care deeply about strengthening academic opportunities for all learners in the Everett Public Schools. Most of the directors either reside or are employed within the boundaries of the Everett Public Schools. Three-year terms begin each September.
