Each year the PTA reviews the budget process to ensure we’re spending donations/fundraising in accordance with donor wishes and Wilchester needs. This is accomplished through our PTA budget survey that guides us in creating the 23-24 budget. It is extremely important that we hear your thoughts. As the PTA is a 503(c) non-profit organization we must allocate 100% of funds. Did you know our budget supports:
- $140,000 towards Wilchester staff salaries (instructional specialists, interventionists, library assistant . . .not covered by the district)
- $66,000 towards classroom support (instructional/supplemental resources, classroom consumables)
- $8,600 towards technology and facility improvements
- $44,000 towards enrichment programs and field trips
- $33,000 for committees/enrichment such as dads and donuts, library events, field trip shirts, teacher appreciation
Please consider taking 5 minutes to share you thoughts in 4 open-ended questions. Giving your thoughts REALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE FOR OUR CHILDREN. Every idea/response will be reviewed for feasibility. You are welcome to respond anonymously as well.
