Providing the EXTRAS for EDUCATION

The Sparta Education Foundation was founded in 1991 based on the belief that Sparta students should not be limited to minimum standards due to a lack of state funding for education. Since that time, many students have benefited from SEF funded grants that provide the extras for education, but still the need continues.

The Sparta Education Foundation's mission is to help to provide creative, progressive, and innovative educational opportunities for our students and staff, which are beyond the normal operating budget of the school district.

Please consider making a contribution and give our students important enrichment opportunities that would not be available otherwise. Go to the CONTRIBUTIONS page for details.

The Sparta Education Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and operated independently from the Sparta Board of Education under an established set of bylaws.
