    Several members of the Sayville Public Schools community have come together to form The Friends of Sayville Educational Foundation.

    The Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable foundation registered in New York State, has been established to maintain and enhance opportunities for Sayville’s kindergarten through twelfth grade population of more than 2,500 students.

    The Board of Directors, comprised of six Sayville High School graduates and led by high school principal Ronald Hoffer, has been engaged in an ongoing discussion with Sayville Superintendent Dr. Walter Schartner and members of the Board of Education to identify not only enhancements to district’s current educational offerings, but also programs which may be in jeopardy in the coming year. The Foundation’s initial project will be to enhance after-school opportunities in the district’s three elementary schools.

    Foundation directors anticipate financial support from a variety of sources, and including a commitment of more than $14,000 per year donated by district employees through voluntary payroll deductions.
