Education fund’s mission hasn’t changed

By Executive Board
Del Mar Schools Education Foundation

The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation wants to let our donors and all parents of the Del Mar Union School District know that the recent actions of the District Board of Trustees have not changed our mission. DMSEF will continue with our current “got ESC?” fundraising campaign for the 2010/2011 school year.

We plan to continue our partnership with parents, PTAs, teachers, principals and district staff to honor our mission to raise funds for ESC teacher salaries. As we have in the past, we will continue to restrict the monies sent to the district to ensure that all monies raised and donated are specifically spent on our ESC teacher salaries.

Our total ESC program costs approximately $3.3 million for the current school year. The district’s portion of $1.7 million is contractually tied to our teachers’ prep time. So, when the classroom teachers are working on their prep time for the class, the kids go to their ESC classes. The remaining balance of $1.6 million of this year’s ESC programs was raised by the foundation through the generous donations of our parents, PTAs, district staff and corporate sponsors. The portion of the program that we fund will be cut if we don’t raise sufficient funds to continue to support it.

For the 2010/2011 school year, we are counting on the same $1.7 million for the district’s portion of our ESC programs as was paid by the district for this year. As for the foundation’s share, we’ve raised approximately $1.1 million and we have until April 30 to raise as much money as possible.

Our goal is to raise enough funds to support the 16.5 positions that support the current ESC program. Our focus will remain on sustaining our district’s superior ESC programs, and we will continue to rely on the generosity of the entire community to achieve our goal.
