California Area School District Foundation


The Foundation supports programs of the California Area School District but operates independently of the California Area School District and the School Board to encourage and promote the development and support of the highest quality programs and experiences which enrich, enhance, and expand the educational opportunities provided by the California Area School District, and/or to the students of the district, nut not to substitute or replace funding for existing programs.

Programs and Services

  • We provide scholarships to graduating seniors for their future education. There is a scholarship application the students have to complete. The committee of the Foundation meets to review the applications and select recipients of the various scholarships. There are approximately 20 students awarded these scholarships.
  • The teachers at California Area School District can apply for mini grants for a project that they may want to manage in their classrooms.
  • The Foundation rewards teachers of the district with a token of appreciation for Teacher Appreciation Week in May.
  • The Foundation provided funds for the district to purchase laptops during the COVID crisis in 2020.
