Stylized Text which says "Watervliet Public Schols Foundation for Excellence"

A few years ago, Community members and leaders started a Foundation to help support and supplement all students at Watervliet Public Schools.  It is a 501c3 charity and is independent of the school system.  The Foundations goals are to: 

  1. Provide better resources for ALL students and teachers
  2. Provide better technology for All students
  3. Provide better experiences for ALL students

During the pandemic, the Foundation and community raised $20,000 for online hot spots to help all students in the district.  This philanthropic organization is looking for more volunteers to keep the Foundation's work growing.  Scheduled meetings are once a month January through May, and every other month in the summer.

The Foundation is looking for individuals to fill the following positions by January of 2022:

  • Chair
  • Vice-Chair
  • Board of Director, Member (has voting rights)
  • Committee Members

If you are interested or have any additional questions, please email Angelene Conkin at or call 463-0791.

Thank you for considering becoming a part of the Watervliet Public Schools Foundation for Excellence.
