Arts Alive is a talent showcase that supports the fine arts in Bay District Schools and the Bay Education Foundation Take Stock in Children program. The mission of Bay Education Foundation is to promote excellence in public education. Board members work to provide important activities and opportunities to deserving students and employees that cannot be supported by tax dollars or that can only partially be funded by Bay District Schools. Bay Education Foundation differs from other local educational foundations by achieving their mission primarily by running programs and raising funds to support these programs.
