Del Mar Schools Education Foundation presents check to Del Mar school board

By Karen Billing

Del Mar Schools Education Foundation President Drew Isaacman presented a $720,000 check to the Del Mar Union School District board at its Feb. 16 meeting.

The current total contributions now stand at $890,000 — the foundation’s goal is $2 million.
“We have serious positive momentum right now and there is every expectation we will meet our funding goal to fund the entire ESC program,” Isaacman said.

ESC stands for the district’s Extended Studies Curriculum, which includes specialized instruction in science, technology, PE, art and music. The foundation’s main goal is to support those educational enrichment programs.

Individual schools have held very successful fundraising activities — Carmel Del Mar’s jogathon brought it $23,888 and Torrey Hills’ recent pajama jam event netted $15,000.

Participation rate is at 50 percent and Isaacman noted last year’s total participation rate was around 62 percent, so he fully believes they can get a high majority of families to donate.
“This community is amazing,” Isaccman said. “It’s a group of individuals who are able to understand our objective and write checks to support our children’s education.”
