By awarding grants to Dexter Community Schools’ staff, the Educational Foundation of Dexter provides the opportunity for our talented educators to offer programs and opportunities to our students that would not otherwise be funded by the district. The efforts of DCS staff, together with the EFD, provide invaluable experiences for our children.
