Plainview Public Schools Foundation

by Dr. Darron Arlt

September 12, 2011

In April 2010, the Plainview Public Schools BOE voted to form the Plainview Public

Schools Foundation.  In doing so, the Board of Education created an opportunity for Plainview alumni and community members to make a difference in the quality of education provided to Plainview  students.   The  Plainview  Public  Schools  Foundation,  organized  as  a  non-profit corporation exclusively for educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, provides an avenue for private contributions to be made to the district and its programs.  In forming the foundation, the Board of Education hopes people will consider donating  money  to  support  student  scholarships,  creative  curriculum  projects,  professional development, enhancing the fine arts and technology, and joint school-community ventures.

Donations made to the foundation can take on various forms, including support of specific projects identified by the Board of Directors, specific projects identified by the donor, and donations to be used at the discretion of the directors.

The Foundation  Board  of Directors  governs the foundation.   The  Board of Directors  is  an independent, volunteer body with the powers to provide fiscal guidance and governance for the foundation.  Although the foundation works closely with the school district leadership to obtain information about district needs, the governance and decision making of the foundation board are entirely separate from the school.  The Board of Directors makes all decisions regarding fund raising and allocation of funds.  The current Board of Directors is composed of Brian Ickler, Delford Kroeger, Janyce Warneke, and Steve Peterson.

My primary motivation for an active foundation is to keep our alumni connected to our school.  I know that our current students can benefit from those Plainview Pirates who have walked these halls, earned a red diploma, and gone on to make a difference in the world.

Please e-mail your stories to me at darlt@plainviewschools.org.  I want to connect you with one or more of our current students who may be interested in the same line of work or career.  I will be mailing a formal letter of introduction to share my vision for the next generations of students here at Plainview Public Schools!

Blessings,
Darron
