The PTA is grateful to our parent community for stepping up every year to provide significant financial and volunteer contributions that are essential to the success of these programs.
The below outlines the expenses and income in the draft 2020-2021 budget. To cover those costs indicated, the goal is to raise approximately $785.00 per student through the Student Support Fund Drive, the Janney Auction, and other fundraising activities, and then to use some of our reserve funds to cover the rest. The PTA will continue to fund educational programs, and to support basic needs of the school that cannot be funded by the DCPS budget. As required by our bylaws, the proposed budget also ensures the financial stability for all PTA financial obligations, including PTA-funded salaries and maintaining a reserve.
