April 27, 6:30pm via Zoom: PTA General Association meeting. Please join us for our last general association meeting of the school year. We will be electing our slate for the 2022/23 year and will be hearing from the SRVCPTA Council on the Raise the Base campaign: The State of California provides funding for every student, from Siskiyou to San Diego, in an equal amount, based on grade level. The collective sum that our school district receives for all of our students, is known as the ‘base grant.’ This is the ‘base’ that the PTA would like to raise. Although other California school districts receive additional funding for socioeconomic reasons, San Ramon Valley Unified receives very little over the base amount. In fact, we are the 4th lowest funded unified school district per student in California. So, while raising the base helps all of California’s children, it especially helps our own kids get more of what we need. Pre Registration is required. Register HERE

The siblings of special needs kids are super special. This is an excellent way to build community when most of their immediate friends can't fully understand the emotional impact of being a special needs sibling.
