Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) Program : Since 2009, funding has been provided to increase college-going rates for students who traditionally not have had access to higher education. AVID is a highly successful national model that is currently serving105 middle and high school students at ROTWUSD.

Regional Occupational Program (ROP): Beginning in 2015, the Foundation is expanding its focus on college and career readiness to include the Regional Occupational Program (ROP ) that provides a variety of career education programs to prepare high school students for employment and/or advanced education and training.
