History of The Schools Foundation

A united Schools Foundation was formed in the fall of 2000 to enhance public education in all public schools in Huntsville, Madison County, and the City of Madison.  This Foundation identified new partners, eager to contribute toward the enhancement of public education in all area schools.


With the support of the community, this vision has resulted in:

•    enhanced educational opportunities for students
•    new professional development opportunities for teachers and principals
•    the creation of the education taskforce
•    a pattern of collaboration among the school districts
•    a growing volunteer organization

Better educational opportunities benefit not only students but also local economic development and the quality of life enjoyed by everyone in our community.
