San Carlos Education Foundation SCEF
Thank you to everyone who has helped to Make it Happen in May! We are getting close to meeting our $2.8M fundraising goal for the 2020-21 school year. In these unprecedented times with looming budget challenges, SCEF is committed to continuing its fundraising efforts to help our schools. The anticipated reductions in California State Funding will be deeply and swiftly felt without the financial support of our community. Every donation will make a difference in the lives of our students.
Let’s see how far we can go together. Please donate today online at https://www.scefkids.org/donate/.

Upcoming School Board Meeting Honoring Retirees and Budget Information
The Board had a presentation on the District's third interim budget at their May 28 meeting - view the presentation here. On June 4, the Board will also be discussing the draft budget for next school year which will include staffing and program reductions of approximately $2,000,000 ($2M) due to the COVID-19 crisis and revenue losses from this year and next. Even with those reductions, the draft budget will likely not meet the necessary State reserve requirements due to a need to address an approximate $3,000,000 ($3M) million shortfall due to additional State funding cuts of 10%. You can watch the meeting via YouTube here. You can share a public comment by sending an email to [email protected].
