2017-2018 Funded Priorities
The KEEP! direct-donation campaign delivers all funds raised directly to education and student-support programs at our two schools. Last year, KEEP! proceeds constituted approximately one-third of the $340,000 raised to fund these efforts. LPEF continues the work of its original charter: funding enhanced and diverse educational opportunities for our children.
In consultation with administration and parents in January 2018, we will establish our funding priorities for the 2018-19 school year.
As a reminder, we funded the following priorities for the 2017-2018 school year:

They assist school administrations in identifying and correcting problems and deficiencies within their current technology-based programs.
