We are keenly aware that while we need more revenue, we must be thoughtful and deliberate in these efforts and keep our focus on student learning at all times. Some of the areas we are investigating include:
Soliciting work from other non-profit agencies: Northshore's Graphics Center is currently self-supporting. By accepting work from other non-profit agencies, the staff has been able to cover annual operating costs while still keeping costs low for in-district "customers."
Helping to build the Northshore Public Education Foundation (NPEF):
The Board of NPEF is working hard to increase resources for schools.
They annually hold several fund-raising activities which have allowed
them to fund several initiatives.
Establishing new business partnerships: The Northshore School District and NPEF are working together to develop business partnerships. The district and NPEF co-hosted a corporate breakfast in August 2007 to explore ways to partner with the local business community.
