The purpose of the Foundation is to provide funds for academic programs, encourage post secondary education through scholarships, and to develop and extend the facilities, services, and resources of the Central Lyon School District. A few examples of recent project distributions include the purchase of student backpacks for the laptop 1:1 program, Smart Board equipment for classrooms, new math curriculum, new media center materials, and a donation to the historical plaza.
