You may already know that California state funding for public schools is poor. But you may be surprised to learn that our state ranks 45th in the nation in state funding per pupil, and provides $3,500 less per student than the national average.
The good news is: we as a community can come together to make up the state’s shortfall. Our school district depends on BCE funds to help pay for credentialed curriculum specialists in math, science, music, art, technology, PE, and library resources, and fund robust professional development for our teachers just to name a few
In short, your tax-deductible BCE donation is critically important to your child’s quality education in Burlingame.
We only have a few days left to raise the final $360,000 of our $2 million goal to both sustain our existing programs and hire a Director of Innovation to oversee these incredible STEAM resources our grant helps fund.
We are grateful for every donation we receive. Every dollar makes a difference. If you haven’t yet made a donation, please do so before the last day of school to help us reach our fundraising goal for the next school year.
And if you’ve already donated to this year’s campaign, I thank you deeply for your partnership in helping our kids…together.
