About Us

FRIENDS (Foothills Residents Involved in Educational Needs of District Students) of CFSD is a group of district parents and supporters who come together when an override election is on the ballot to provide information to voters.

Mission: To advocate for a strong public education system which is responsive to the needs of students and the Catalina Foothills community.

We believe:

      • in strong public education;
      • in community control of our education system;
      • that education is the best investment a community can make.

FRIENDS of CFSD will work to:

      • inform the community about ballot issues affecting the Catalina Foothills School District;
      • build an effective grassroots advocacy group to provide support for quality education in future elections.
