Why do we need Annual Giving Donations, and where does all of that money go at Rancho? 

Why do we need Annual Giving Donations, and where does all of that money go at Rancho? 

Schools throughout the district need to raise additional funds in order to maintain all of the programs currently in place. Your student will enjoy art, reading, math, and classroom aides this year at Rancho. These are programs NOT funded by our district. Without the additional funding from our families, we wouldn’t be able to offer these programs to our children and further enrich their education. 
RREF has committed to spending $1,130 per Rancho student this school year, and the support of our Rancho Romero parent community is as critical as ever. 
Each week, we have an additional 303 hours of classroom paraprofessional, certified music, reading, writing and math specialists, additional library hours, noontime sports, Kindergarten/TK PE, and instructional assistant time supporting our Rancho staff because of the Rancho Romero Education Fund.  For a second consecutive year, the SRVUSD will be providing an Instructional Assistant for 25 hours/week. This will cover the 18 hours of Reading IA and 7 hours of the Math IA. SRVUSD is also providing all elementary school sites with a much-needed math intervention curriculum.
