Mission Statement All students and staff wil excel in a safe, carying and collaborative environment. The Buhler USD 313 Education Foundation was formed in December, 1998, by the Buhler USD 313 Board of Education to enrich the educational experiences and opportunities for all of our students. Public funding is often restricted in use and availability. Private funding has a significant role to play in providing the extras that are sometimes needed or to support educational opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable to students. The Education Foundation manages cash, products and services donated to the school district. It is a not-for-profit corporation and operates as a separate entity from the Board of Education. The money donated to the foundation is not used to fund the budget of Buhler USD 313. The Buhler USD 313 Education Foundation has identified four goals: Enhance the quality of education for all students. Provide individuals, businesses and organizations an opportunity to contribute to the education mission of Buhler USD 313. Maximize the financial earning potential of scholarship, endowment and designated funds through prudent asset management. Increase community involvement and support, and encourage communication between the community and school.
