The Benevolent Funds for student assistance is aimed at providing basic medical support to students that cannot afford them. The ultimate goal of this fund is to allow disadvantaged students to focus on their learning by receiving the necessary assistance they require to be successful. This allows them to feel better and gives them the appropriate tools that enable them to be successful in a school setting.
These funds support items such as eyeglasses, hearing aids and batteries, wheelchair batteries, one-time supply of medications, and emergency dental visits. This is an internal fund that can only be accessed by Westminster Public Schools staff members on behalf of the students. If you are a family member with a medical concern regarding a WPS student, please contact your child’s school. If you are a district employee needing to learn more about this fund, please contact the administrative leadership at your school.
