Residents and parents want to raise more money for their local school districts so they can provide new and bigger programs for students.
The money is coming from education foundations, which have been formed for Center Grove, Clark-Pleasant, Franklin and Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson schools. Foundation members work throughout the year to raise money that supports programs their school districts couldn’t afford otherwise.
“Our schools are having a really hard time just being able to provide the absolute necessities for the day-to-day basis. For our students, we’re able to provide them some additional learning opportunities they wouldn’t normally have,” Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson education foundation treasurer Lisa Mahan said.
