The State of Schools is a fundraiser for The Fayette Education Foundation. The Foundation is a nonprofit which serves as a link between the school district and the community soliciting resources – time, talent and treasure – from individuals, businesses, and private foundations and then distributing those resources to promote equity, educational excellence and innovative programs.
