How does SchoolForce work with the Central PTA to support our kids?

The basic way to remember how we work together is this: SchoolForce funds staff, including music, library, science and reading specialists. The PTA funds stuff, including assemblies, classroom materials and social events. SchoolForce operates at a district level and is able to keep our teacher:student ratios strong, our "extras" like art and music running, and the science and technology programs that help make our schools so excellent. PTA operates on a campus level, and is able to build school communities and support teachers directly with training, supplies, and volunteer hours from parents. 


We encourage all district parents to understand the missions of both the PTA and SchoolForce, and to support them generously with your financial donations and volunteer hours.  Thank you!

In order to maintain the vital programs SchoolForce provides to Central and our district, all families are asked to make a donation of $1500 per child.  While $1500 is a lot of money, it is used to directly support the outstanding education your child receives, and by donating $125 per month you help guarantee that our district can provide this high caliber program.  Please give as generously as you can; when SchoolForce is strong, every child benefits.
