Immediate Positive Impact

EEF-Impact-InfographicAn immediate positive impact is necessary in order to avoid further attrition in students and their families to neighboring districts through the state’s new open enrollment policies. More students choosing to attend ECS means more government funding to support the district.

Supplemental Funding

We need supplemental funding for extracurricular programming, special projects, and innovative teaching strategies that will enhance the educational experience and instill necessary values for long-term success, for all students regardless of their ability to pay.
