What is Glencoe School Foundation?
The Glencoe School Foundation is a group of parents, teachers and community member volunteers who are committed to excellence in education at Glencoe. The foundation works hand in hand with the PTA to enrich education opportunities for our kids. The PTA funds are used for additional supplies, community events and equipment but cannot be used for staffing - while the Foundation funds can and are used for incremental staff.
The Glencoe site council makes recommendations to the principal on how funds raised should be used at Glencoe. The principal makes the final decision on how funds are used.
The Glencoe Foundation is part of the Portland Public School's All Hands Raised foundation. As such, after the first $10,000 raised, 1/3 of additional funds are dispersed throughout the PPS system.
