The Power of 50 for Education Fund is a new Sunriver Women’s Club philanthropy program targeted at supporting student success in south Deschutes County. The goal is to raise $50,000 to provide children and youth with needed opportunities and resources that will promote school success.
Many south Deschutes students face challenges in achieving grade level success and making targets required for graduation. In 2021, the graduation rate for La Pine High School dropped to 59%, which is a 17% decrease from the previous year and significantly lower than any Bend school. Virtual schooling has increased existing disparities in school success.
There is a team meeting with community and educational leaders to identify specific ways the proceeds will be used to maximize student success. It is anticipated to reach the goal of $50,000 mid to late 2022.
