About us

Our Mission

Our Mission is to provide resources to the students, teachers, and staff of the West Platte School District--beyond those that can be provided by the District itself--to promote and encourage the highest standards of educational excellence and achievement.



The West Platte School District is financially secure and can fully fund its mission to provide a quality education within excellent facilities. But district funds cannot be used for some initiatives that can make a qualitative difference in academic excellence for West Platte students. The West Platte Education Foundation fills this gap by awarding scholarships to outgoing seniors, by funding creative “outside the box” initiatives by classroom teachers, by providing financial assistance and school supplies to students in need, and in many other ways. For some students, support from the West Platte Education Foundation can make the difference between a good education and a superior academic experience.
