Founded in 1998, the Hasbrouck
Heights Education Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization established to
enhance and support programs that enrich the educational experience of Hasbrouck Heights
public school students in grades K-12 by providing additional community resources to
support programs and activities that have a positive educational impact.
Who is the Foundation?
The Hasbrouck Heights Education Foundation is a coalition of parents, residents, and business leaders working together to enhance the education of children in the Hasbrouck Heights Public School District. The HHEF works closely with the Board of Education and school administration, but remains independent in funding, project selection, and project evaluation.
How are projects funded?
Projects are funded through tax-deductible contributions, proceeds from fund-raising activities, or monies obtained through grants from public or private agencies. NO LOCAL TAX DOLLARS ARE USED.
Why is there a need for the Foundation?
The Hasbrouck Heights School District educates 1500 children, kindergarten though 12th grade in two elementary schools, the middle level school, and the high school. The Hasbrouck Heights School District provides a quality education for our students. However, it has become increasingly more difficult to fund innovative educational programs that add a richness to the educational experience of our young people. It is the Foundations goal to support such innovation.
The Hasbrouck Heights Education
Foundation is in the process of forming an alumni association as an additional means of
both financial and perpetual support. A Hall of Fame is also being planned for Fall 2001.
If you are a graduate of Hasbrouck Heights Jr. Sr. High School and would like to join this
fledgling association, please contact us.
