Pleasanton Partnerships In Education (PPIE) Foundation, is working in conjunction with the Pleasanton Unified School District and the Pleasanton Schools Educational Enrichment (PSEE) Foundation to raise funds for programs that would have been supported by Measure G and have been cut.
The goal for the campaign is to raise $2.8 million. This would fully fund four areasclass size reduction for grades K-3 and grade 9 to 20:1 (currently at 25:1); reading specialists; counselors to 2008 / 2009 levels, and the elementary band and strings program. PSEE will focus on the elementary band and strings program. This is in line with their mission, and their part of the campaign goal is $120,000. PPIE will focus on the other three areas.
PLEASE... DONATE NOW!! The campaign will end on August 15. At that time, the foundations and the District will look at how much money has been raised and determine to what degree each of the areas could be supported. 100% of donations made through either foundation will go the campaign, and either foundation can accept donations for any of the programs. Donations processed with no bank fees!
