– UNITY IN OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY –
All the Belmont-Redwood Shores Public Schools Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs) and the Belmont-Redwood Shores Public Schools Education Foundation (SchoolForce) partner to make it easier for parents to support our schools. When you donate during the Education Commitment Campaign (ECC) from August 1 to October 31, your donation will cover virtually all of your child’s educational needs. The suggested ECC donation is $1,800 per student – the first $250 goes to your child’s school PTA(s) and the remainder ($1,550) to the SchoolForce, the district-wide education foundation.
We are lucky to live in a community who values high-quality education. Our community has long financially supported our schools so that all students have the opportunity for academic success by funding the gap between what state dollars provide and funding the people and programs that give Belmont-Redwood Shores students a well-rounded educational experience.
In just a minute and a half our Chief Business Official, Rui Bai, explains why parent financial support makes such a huge impact for BRSSD students. Parent donations provide our kids with opportunities beyond the basics of reading, writing and math.
California ranks 10th nationally in per capita tax revenue, but 40th for percentage of its budget spent on education, and unfunded or underfunded mandates for schools have grown significantly over time. This makes local funding more important than ever.
Together, SchoolForce and our school PTAs provide funding for the people, programs, community, and culture that make our schools great places for our kids to learn and thrive. LEARN MORE about what we fund.
Specialized credentialed teachers and librarians, counselors, technology, arts programs and more. See the SchoolForce Annual Report for details.
School supplies, assemblies, community events, parent education and more. Check your school's website for details.

“With California public schools being so underfunded, contributing to the ECC feels like a necessity to us. We appreciate that it's a straightforward donation, and we're consistently impressed by how the BRSSD community comes together each year to support the kids."
