The Carson City Schools Foundation considers itself a small conduit of information, but its volunteers are keen on funneling resources in powerful ways that will help the local school district.
Foundation President Steve Reynolds, secretary/treasurer Casey Gilles and board member Keith Squires, along with five others, are focusing on efforts to support the Carson City School District’s staff and students financially in ways its sites might be limited to doing on their own. The foundation also is open to adapting to scholarship requests that have happened in recent months with COVID-19 and new needs in the classroom that have arisen for district staff members.
“Our mission is that we want to secure funding for schools,” Reynolds explained at the Aug. 25 school board meeting. “We want to support projects beyond schools funded by district and work with the community.”
