Improving the academic performance of underserved students in Redwood City
The Redwood City Education Foundation is a nonprofit that increases underserved students' early academic performance to improve their ability to meet math and literacy proficiency standards, thereby reducing enrollment in remedial courses and increasing their likelihood of meaningful success in high school and beyond.
A Focus on Equity
School districts in San Mateo County receive very different levels of funding. Some neighboring communities have more than 2x the resources for public education as the Redwood City School District. These inequities make it more challenging for our district to retain quality teachers and create the very best conditions for learning.
You help close the gap between our district's resources and the actual cost of educating our students.
