Why Both PTA & EEF?
What are the Capri PTA and EEF?
The PTA is a parent/faculty group that supports over 20+ programs and services at Capri Elementary School. Our membership-pledge drive allows you to join the Capri PTA and have a voice to vote on school related issues. A suggested membership pledge is $25 per person, however any amount is welcome. Through our PTA fundraising efforts, we connect our school and the community to help students succeed personally and academically.
EEF (Encinitas Educational Foundation) is a 501(c)3 that supports Kindergarten-6th grade in the Encinitas Union School District. Family and Corporate donations provide funding for the "WHEEL" programs like Science, Technology, Visual and Performing Arts and Physical Education. 100% of your donation stays at Capri and supports the children at Capri!
Where does your donation go?
The PTA raises funds to provide programs that enhance the curriculum and your child's experience during the current school year.
EEF's donations provide funding for Wheel Teachers’ salaries. These classes consist of hands-on, collaborative learning experiences for all students.
What programs are being funded?
The Capri PTA programs are designed to enrich the students' curriculum and thus, will be fully or partially-funded as donations allow:
ART SUPPLIES • CAPRI READS • FIELD TRIPS
LIBRARY BOOKS • MINI GRANTS • ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT
VARIETY SHOW • GRADE SPECIFIC EXPERIENCES • SCIENCE FAIR • 6TH GRADE PROMOTION •. AND MANY MORE
The EEF-funded "WHEEL" programs include:
ART • SCIENCE • P.E.
Who decides how donations are spent?
The executive officers of the PTA prepare a budget and list of proposed programs each year. The proposed budget and plan are presented and approved by the general PTA membership during the September PTA General Meeting.
Funds raised by the EEF are allocated based upon the recommendation of the Capri School Site Council. This council is a school-level group made up of equal representation from elected parents, appointed teachers and the Principal. They are tasked with improving academic achievement through efficient use of the donated funds and make recommendations of how EEF donations be allocated.
