At Bessemer Area Schools our primary focus is to offer our students a 21st century education, provide a highly qualified teaching staff, updated technology and curriculum, and a safe learning environment. The majority of our funding is targeted to support our primary focuses. Each school day a majority of our students ride our buses to and from school, to school field trips or to sporting events. Our goal is provide the safest transportation possible when our students and staff step on our buses. As we all know, school budgets are being reduced by our state legislators forcing schools to become creative with raising funds to reach their missions and visions. Our school district like many districts in the state is experiencing budget reduction each year. That is why we are asking for your help to fund the upgrading of buses for our students. By donating to our bus fund you are demonstrating a valuable asset to our students and providing an opportunity for them to learn about the importance of giving back and being an integral part of their community.
The link below is our new "E-Fund for Schools" site. Please use the "E-Fund for Schools" site to make your donation to our bus fund raising campaign. It is the easiest, fastest and most secure way to donate.
Once you sign on and create your account, there is a tab toward the top of the screen that says "Special Services" and drops down to "Fundraising". If you click on "Fundraising", it will take you to the donation page.
