About Us

The Nettleton Education Foundation is a group of professionals and parents committed to enriching the educational opportunities of students throughout Nettleton Public Schools.

Each year, NEF raises funds to provide unique learning opprotunities that are outside the core curriculm and beyond the district’s operational budget. These funds are also used to provide scholars to seniors.

Nettleton Education Foundation creates excitement district-wide when grants are awared to teachers each Fall by the Surprise Patrol. In the Spring, they honor scholar seniors during Academic Signing Day.

 

Academic Signing 

In 2017, Nettleton Education Foundation partnered with Nettleton Public Schools teachers, staff and administration to honor the academic achievements of the graduating class. This has since become an annual event. It is an exciting event in which all graduating seniors attending any institution of higher learning are invited. The universities and colleges are also invited to set up for the students to meet a school representative as well as sign. 

The class of 2018-2019 was offered a total of $5,601,171 in scholarship money. The overall amount accepted $3,677,373.
