SESSFA is proud to announce that this summer our 17 schools received checks from SESSFA‘s 2022-2023 pooled amount of $397,508! 


We followed the same equitable model as last year with the first 50 percent of funds raised to be split equally and the second 50 percent to be split using our equitable model that accounts for race and ethnicity as well as students receiving special education, multilingual and McKinney Vento services. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to the equitable fundraising and advocacy work we are doing in our communities. It’s #anewwaytopta
