Jean Vansmith
Executive Director

When we look at the size of our school district with 67,000 students, it can seem impossible to make a difference. But when we bring together teachers, businesses, community volunteers, and district leadership, we have the ability to make a huge impact. The Foundation is here to support the needs of students and teachers, but we can’t do it without our community partners.

While our programs have become more flexible to meet changing needs, our mission has remained true to improve student achievement in Seminole County Public Schools. Aligned with the school district, The Foundation focuses on raising funds for three priorities:

  • Remove barriers that keep children from coming to school ready to learn.
  • Provide resources in classrooms and enhance student performance.
  • Help maintain our high performing school district by providing for professional development and recognition of our high performing educators and support staff.

Thanks to the businesses and community members who support The Foundation, we’re able to provide brighter futures for students.

Sincerely,

Jean Vansmith
Executive Director
