Set up monthly direct giving:
PTA Goal: $150,000 each academic year
No joke – that's a big number! And WCE counts on the PTA gift each year to help keep paraprofessionals in the classrooms, interventionists in the school, provide updated technology for the kids, and so much more!
WCE is a public school. But school budgets have not been funded enough to keep up with rising costs.
All high-performing DPS schools have to fundraise between $150,000–$250,000 annually to “fund the gap” between their actual costs and their allotted budget. Colorado ranks 43rd nationally for per student funding
Colorado spends $2,704 less per pupil than the national average
WCE receives just base federal funding per pupil because we are not designated a Title 1 school
A Title 1-designated elementary school close to WCE and with half the student population receives nearly $300,000 more in annual federal funding dollars than WCE
