By Karen Billing, Del Mar Times
Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD) students have been racing laps and raising unprecedented funds at school jogathons to support specialists in STEAM + curriculum that includes the subjects of science, technology, engineering, arts, music, PE and more.
The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) has announced a $1.8 million annual fundraising goal to allow the Del Mar Union School District (the District) to hire enough credentialed specialists for a robust STEAM+ program.
The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) has received tremendous support from parents and the local community as it continues to raise funds for the salaries of STEAM+ specialists in the Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD). STEAM+ is the district’s focus on the integration of science, technology, art, music and physical education enrichment across the curriculum.
Having contributed $1.2 million to DMUSD last year, DMSEF was able to fund 40 percent of the STEAM+ specialists in the schools. Currently, the Foundation has raised just over $1 million and is looking for contributions to meet the current staffing requirements.
