On behalf of the newly established Airport Community Schools Foundation, our district is excited to announce the creation of a nonprofit organization to support educational excellence at Airport Community Schools!
The Airport Community Schools Foundation / Alumni Association is a charitable organization — independent of Airport Community Schools — seeking to enhance the district’s educational programs. Although the Foundation will support our district, it will operate as its own separate entity.
Some ways the Foundation may work to support education may include the creation of scholarship programs, teacher/classroom grants, coordination of facilities upgrades or other projects in which federal, state and local funding is inadequate.
Most importantly, the Foundation needs your help!
The Foundation is seeking 7 community members to form its first Board of Directors. If you have a passion to give back to your community, bleed Jet Pride or have a history of professional memberships, you might be a good candidate for a Director position.
Directors would be involved in creating a mission and vision for this organization, securing donations to support program enhancement for ACS and making connections with district alumni, among other administrative responsibilities. Here are some qualifications the Board’s hiring committee is looking for:
- Strong ties to Jet community
- Passion for students and education
- Fundraising experience
- Evidence of community involvement
- Diverse professional experience, skills to support the Board’s growth (i.e. Backgrounds in education, finance, marketing, etc.)
- Previous professional membership desired, but not required
Alumni are encouraged to apply, but you DO NOT have to be an alumni to be considered.
Thank you for your support and interest. Jet Pride!
