Strategic Plan 2017-2022

The La Crosse Public Education Foundation is guided by a Strategic Plan that aims to fulfill our mission by increasing our impact in schools and strengthening the organization for the long term.

With input from key stakeholders — teachers, administrators, parents and community supporters — a new Strategic Plan was adopted by the Board of Directors on Aug. 28, 2017. This five-year plan builds on the previous plan, adopted Aug. 24, 2015.

The plan maintains a commitment to our mission and focuses on four key strategies:

Mission
