New Haven Schools Foundation

New Haven Schools Foundation website

The New Haven Schools Foundation provides financial support in the school district in primarily two ways. First, we provide funding for innovative classroom programs and student activities through our teacher grant program. Second, we manage a community-based scholarship program for seniors graduating from all four of our secondary school programs. Our aim is to make significant contributions that serve the interest of the students of New Haven Unified School District.

PASE: Pilipinx-American Society for Education

The mission of PASE is to act as a liaison between the Filipinx community, its students and the New Haven Unified School District, thereby promoting success among the Filipinx population of students throughout the district. Through utilization of community agencies and other available resources, PASE will meet the various needs of Filipinx students. Such services will include the promotion of cultural awareness, an enriched curriculum, parental involvement, healthy lifestyles, and higher education. PASE will strive to increase the visibility of role models, address Filipinx issues, and empower Filipinx students physically, emotionally, and intellectually.
