In these challenging economic times, California public schools are getting squeezed. State budget cuts over the past 10 years have made it necessary to rely on parent contributions to fully fund our ESC program. In the Del Mar Union School District, the salaries for credentialed teachers for Science, Music, Art, Technology, and Physical Education are funded by YOUR contributions to the DMSEF. The ESC Program enhances and utilizes the core curriculum, crucial to the development of the whole child by providing unique and new ways to develop their ideas.
Every student in our district benefits from the ESC program everyday, so we ask that every family help pay for the cost of these valuable programs. A full ESC program requires parent contributions of $800 per child. While $800 per student is the suggested contribution, please contribute what you can. Contributions at any level are both needed and appreciated. Your contribution is a lasting investment in our school District and our children, with long-term results.
Without sufficient contributions, the ESC program will go away.
