"Promote Excellence;" attend this year's Celebration of Excellence! For more information, or to volunteer, please visit our site: gjef.org

In 2002, through the inspired vision of the School business Advisory Council and the generous support of the Gahanna Rotary and the Gahanna Area Fund, the Gahanna-Jefferson Education Foundation (GJEF) was created to provide a special community focus on education.

How Do We Promote Excellence? Through a competitive grant procedure, GJEF has been able to enhance and enrich academic programs in many areas. To date, the Education Foundation has funded more than 700 grants for a total of over $980,000. Additional donor designated projects and scholarships have been awarded. How Do We Fund Our Projects? Over the past five years, GJEF has hosted our Celebration of Excellence which is an evening of fun and fundraising. Proceeds from the events now total over $1.56 million. The GJEF Board has committed two-thirds of the proceeds to the grants program and one-third to be invested to create an endowment. Where Do We Go From Here? As we look to the future, GJEF plans to continue funding competitive grants. We are also anxious to provide a means allowing individuals to make designated donations in support of specific academic programs or scholarships. We are committed to build upon the positive business partnership connection and continue to recruit enthusiastic volunteers in support of our mission of "Promoting Excellence".

Mission: Our purpose is to "Promote Excellence" by funding innovative projects beyond the traditional expenditures of the Gahanna-Jefferson Board of Education. We also provide support and resources for the district pupil service staff in addressing personal student needs through the Harvey Mast Care For Kids Program.

To learn more about the plan to return to school this fall, please check out this post and video of last week's school board meeting.

🚨🚨🚨 As you know we recently completed a survey with our families and staff which measured opinion on what our return to learning could look like in August. The response indicated that IF the various health departments allowed us to return to the classroom with limited social distancing restrictions and full classrooms, then most parents and staff would like a return to traditional classroom learning.

πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ Unfortunately, we do not yet know what restrictions might be placed on our return. We expect there will be health and safety requirements that limit the number of students we can have in a classroom or on a bus at the same time, so we also MUST plan for different scenarios that take us away from the traditional classroom model--if we are required to do so.

πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ The rest of the information provided in the survey was extremely helpful in directing our Task Force to the next most popular choice for learning in the fall IF adhering to public health requirements DO NOT ALLOW US to return with our traditional full classrooms.

πŸ˜€πŸ˜ŠπŸ™‚ We were thrilled so many chose to respond to our survey. We want to assure you that we studied the results very carefully and are using the responses to help us prepare for all of our return to learning scenarios.

πŸ’»πŸ–₯πŸ“±The preliminary results of the survey were shared at the June 18 Board of Education Meeting. If you would like to review those results, please check out the video recording of the meeting with a discussion about the survey starting at the 1:06 mark. ‡️‡️‡️
