Lago Vista ISD Education Foundation

Make a difference today for a better tomorrow.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization started in 1999 to enhance education in the Lago Vista Independent School District.

The LVISDEF works with the community to enrich, maintain and expand programs in order to meet the district's stated mission of excellence. We foster creative approaches to education through private grants as well as student achievement through PSAT costs for 9th and 10th grade exams.

Our Bylaws can be found here.
