The Rockdale County Public Schools Foundation, a school/community partnership, is committed to attracting funds and resources for education programs and projects not covered in the school system’s regular budget. The Foundation invites teachers, parents, businesses, community organizations, and civic groups to support educational initiatives that benefit all our students. The Foundation supports creative and educationally beneficial activities through the grant program, provides teachers with opportunities to participate in continuing education, and recognizes outstanding achievements by students and educators.
Our mission is to enhance student learning in Rockdale County Public Schools by providing financial support for innovative initiatives, rewarding student achievement, and serving as an advocate for public education. Formed in 1988 as a vehicle to attract funds for educational programs and projects not covered in the school system’s regular budget, the Rockdale County Public Schools Foundation has created a partnership between the school system and the community at large. In addition, the Foundation has funded creative and educationally beneficial activities through their grant program, provided teachers with opportunities to participate in continuing education, and recognized outstanding achievements by students and educators. Members of the Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce and the Rockdale Public Schools Board of Education recognized that tax dollars alone could not support all of the educational opportunities needed to assure the students of Rockdale County an excellent education. Therefore, new sources of funding needed to be found. A school/community partnership, the Foundation provides alternative sources for receiving tax-deductible contributions. Governed by a volunteer Board, the Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization.
