"Committed to Education" LICENSE PLATE

Show your support for education by proudly displaying the Read On Education License Plate on your automobiles. This specialty plate can be purchased for an additional $40 per year. For each education plate you choose, the Valparaiso Schools Foundation receives $18.75 that can be used locally to improve and enhance the educational opportunities available for our students. Ask for the Education License Plate when you renew at the BMV or by mail and remember to designate Valparaiso Community Schools. It will make a difference for kids and part of your $40 fee is tax deductible.


We invite you to join the Valpo Schools Foundation in improving and enhancing opportunities for students by making a donation today.
