Board and Staff

ScottDrzycimskiThe value of a strong education is incalculable. As an alumnus of the Cedar Rapids Community School District, and a parent of students in the District, I see that value first hand. But the worth of a well-rounded education isn’t just for the student and their parent, but the whole community. The Cedar Rapids Community Schools Foundation is our chance to support our community in a very important and special way – our future. Each day, our gifted District educators are creating Cedar Rapids’ next crop of community leaders. The activities that enrich education – whether field trips, after-school activities or special events – are key to building our future leaders. But the funds aren’t always there to make these activities a reality. The Foundation, with your support, can lift up schools, teachers and families to help bridge the funding gaps. Thanks for partnering with us to grow future leaders in our home community.

Thank you,




Scott Drzycimski, Board Chair
