This past year, the Visalia Unified School District office staff selected the Visalia Education Foundation as the recipient for their "Friday Jeans Fundraiser". Staff at the Visalia Unified School District Office located at 5000 W. Cypress are given the chance to wear denim jeans on selected Fridays if they make a donation to the selected non-profit. Staff this year raised $1,795 for Visalia Education Foundation through this program! The Visalia Education Foundation Board would like to thank those who contributed.  Your contributions will help VEF continue their support of VUSD students through scholarships and will provide additional teacher mini and major grants for innovative classroom projects that increases student access to classroom technology and other educational enhancements.
