Del Mar Schools Education Foundation asks for extension to hit $1.5 million fundraising target

By Karen Billing

Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) President Drew Isaacman requested an extension on the Extended Studies Curriculum fundraising deadline at the April 23 Del Mar Union School District board meeting. The fundraising deadline was set for April 30, but Isaacman requested a two-week extension as DMSEF’s current contribution level is at $925,000 and DMSEF is aiming to raise $1.5 million to replicate the programs DMSEF has this year in science, art, music, technology and PE.

Jason Romero, district assistant superintendent of human resources, said that timeline will be sufficient for the staffing decisions the district has to make in May.

The parent participation rate this year is at 49 percent, Isaacman said.

“We are going to work very hard in the next few weeks to get it done,” Isaacman said. “The ESC program has never been stronger and I think parents want to keep it as strong as it was before.”
