DVHS Education Fund is a special collaboration between the parents, administrators, teachers and students at Dougherty Valley High School.  Our goal is simple - to raise funds to provide the needed academic support to the entire student body.  96% of all donations go back to DVHS in various forms of support for our students.
How are the DVHS Education Funds used?
  • Reduce Class SizesFirst, we reduce core academic class sizes (English, Math, Science and Social Studies) for all grades by purchasing additional sections from the district.  In addition to reducing class size, this also allows for students to be able to take a 7 period day.
  • Classroom Donations:  Second, our fund is covering the cost of all classroom donations & supplies. What does this mean?  To put it simply, once school starts, you will not be getting a letter from your student's teachers asking for additional funds to cover the costs of needed classroom supplies. Examples of supplies we fund include:
    • science kits
    • chemicals
    • dissection specimens
    • art supplies such as, clay, glaze and paint
    • subscriptions for English classes
  • Large Capital Purchases:  Third, our fund replaces aging equipment, furniture and technology.  Goals include:
    • Increasing donations to make large capital purchases to replace aging equipment,
    • Ensuring that all students have access to the latest technology,
    • Bolstering the engineering and science departments by providing new classes, equipment and technology.
    • Growing the fine arts department by providing additional equipment and supplies.

How do we raise funds?

In order to raise the necessary funds, we are asking parents to contribute $495 per student or $825 per family.  If you're able to give more, additional contributions are always welcome, but contributions of ANY amount are gratefully received.  As the Education Fund benefits every student attending DVHS, we urge every family to give something - even if you presently are not able to give the full amount.
Mindful of the demands on your time and your wallet, the annual donation drive during registration is the only fundraiser we hold.  We don't hold an auction, car wash, or any other fundraisers during the year.  So your support at registration is critical to fulfilling our goals.
Your continued support and contributions will help sustain our school's tradition of academic excellence.  Thank you for your support
