Organizations Supporting Oak Park USD
The Oak Park Education Foundation (OPEF) is an organization with the purpose of providing additional private funding in support of Oak Park Schools. It raises hundreds of thousands of dollars to support our schools. OPEF funds an additional counselor, instructional aide support in grades K-3 in the areas of literacy and numeracy at all elementary schools, and STEAM and enrichment programs K-12. Generous contributions from parents, alumni, and businesses provide needed support to help our schools offer what cannot be funded on state funding alone.Additionally, each school has a Parent Teacher Organization and Oak Park High School has several booster clubs that support athletic teams, music, and the performing arts.Oak Park Education FoundationOak Park’s high standard of living results in our schools receiving one of the lowest per-pupil rates in California–853 out of 946 districts. While state funding pays for the basics, it does not pay for programs that ensure educational excellence and give our students the most competitive edge in a future job market and in life.
Philanthropy is the single revenue source for which we have total control and is essential to the success of our District. To preserve Oak Park’s small class sizes, innovative academics, career enrichment programs, and safe and secure campus environments, we are asking parents and stakeholders to consider a generous philanthropic investment in our educational foundation.
