Established since 1982, SEF has been an integral part of the success in raising the standards of the Saratoga Union School District (SUSD) making it one of the most desirable school districts in the US. SEF is a collective parental effort, entirely volunteer-run, independent non-profit 501(c)(3) organization bringing excellence to our schools. Our appoach ensures that nearly 100% of your donations go directly to our students’ school programs. We are most grateful to the Saratoga community including all of the principals, teachers, families and local small businesses whose support makes possible high quality educational programs for each of our students.
We recently distributed via the schools hard copies of our Outlook Annual Report for 2015-2016. You can download a copy here.
Direct donations from parents like you make up the vast majority of SEF funding. Tax-deductible donations benefit every child in our school district. We also receive donations from local businesses and community members. Please get to know what we do and help us continue to help our kids through the education programs we provide for every child during the school day. If you sent your child to private schools in the area, for K-8 kids the costs are typically over $26k per annum. We ask for a tiny fraction of this sum ($800 per student) to provide programs that are educationally enriching and highly competitive. In order to fund our programs, we need all parents to make a contribution.
