    LAEF has been supporting the LAUSD schools since 1982 when it began as the Friends of Seal Beach School Foundation, then changing 3 years later to the LAUSD Education Foundation with the merging of school districts. In the beginning, the foundation was used to support specific projects such as constructing the Performing Arts Center building at LAHS, upgrading technology and helping with improvements to football facilities. Over more recent years as the foundation expanded, the After School Programs and Summer Enrichment Institute were created and its final name change occurred in 2012 to the Los Alamitos Education Foundation (LAEF). LAEF also spearheaded class size reduction and Intervention Programs at the elementary schools. With a focus on supporting STEAM programs and on an as-need basis through its Ignite Fund, LAEF continues to impact all students in the district and provide enrichment opportunities for every student in the district.
