MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The Commission on Lutheran Schools (CLS) guides and assists congregations in advancing the gospel of Jesus by providing resources, training, and assistance for starting and strengthening WELS schools. The work of CLS is funded only in part by Synod allocation of congregational mission offerings. Many of the services provided by CLS are made possible by annual support provided directly by schools. Lutheran Schools Annual Support (formally called supplemental contribution) is an opportunity for your school to walk together with over 400 fellow WELS schools in our joint commitment to offering gospel centered education.
Contributing schools will receive tangible benefits such as one annual on-site visit from your school counselor; the Council for American Private Education (CAPE) monthly newsletter, and preferred rates for PowerSchool and WELSSA Annual fees.
Schools who make a Lutheran Schools Annual Support contribution will receive a complimentary subscription to Vector Solutions Training suite. Vector Solutions offers training courses for your school staff compliance needs in health, safety, and environmental issues such as blood borne pathogens, mandatory reporting, bullying prevention, and many more. View the available course listing here.
Contributions for each school year will be accepted beginning July 5, 2023. For any questions or concerns about Lutheran Schools Annual Support, please fill out the Contact Us form.
