Back to School Fair

Each year The Educational Foundation of Lake County identifies over 9,000 students who participate in the free lunch program in grades K-5 and invites them and their families to the Back to School Back Pack Fair. Three fairs are held annually in Leesburg, Clermont and Tavares. Partnerships are extended to social service agencies including Lake County CTST, Vision Quest, Lake County Dental Society, Lake County Library System, and Lake County Health Department which provide information and additional supplies to attendees. School social workers and guidance counselors are provided with additional backpacks for students who are in need and unable to attend the fairs. Our goal is for every student in Lake County to start the new school year ready to succeed.
