"In my last column, I misstated the parental contribution to the San Ramon Valley school district. Parents invest $14 million per year directly into school programs and classrooms by donation (not including parcel and property taxes paid)."
Wow. If this is true, 26,000 San Ramon Unified students get avg. $538 per pupil in donations.
Pleasanton's revenue limit per student is $6,347.
San Ramon at $5,725 per student PLUS $538 in donations would be $6,263. This doesn't include revenue from their parcel tax.
