Welcome to the EEF at OPE
EEF at OPE is a chapter of the greater district Encinitas Educational Foundation that was created to bridge the gap between public school funding and the needs of our students at OPE. OPE has a rich tradition of generosity. It’s because of the generosity of many families that our children can receive award-winning programming and an excellent, well-rounded education.
The EEF at OPE Funds ‘Enrichment Teachers’, our school’s focus on Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Art, and Math (S.T.R.E.A.M.).

You have the option for placing a “One-Time” donation in any amount, or an “Ongoing Recurring” donation.
The School Site Council at OPE has requested $195,000 from EEF to cover Enrichment Teacher costs for the 2022-2023 school year. This amount divided by the anticipated number of students yields a $325 “Invest in Your Child” cost per student.

What does the EEF do?
Our chapter works to raise the essential funding for the Enrichment Program at our school and it is our goal to ensure our kids receive the best possible education.
How do students benefit?
Through EEF funding, every student at OPE benefits from grade-specific enrichment programs with a focus on STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math).
Additionally, the site support teachers make sure that all students receive the help needed to excel while the home teachers can focus on the rest of the class. The funds we raise go directly to paying the enrichment teachers’ salaries.

Support from all families is needed. So how can I contribute?
As it stands, a considerable amount of our school’s budget is funded by parents and the community.
The old-fashioned “the state-pays-for-everything” public school has disappeared in California. This means that parents, extended family members, business partners and other community members fund the enrichment education our children receive here at OPE. Nearly half of California school districts have created foundations to provide additional funding for their schools and our district is no exception. In order to help our kids succeed in today’s world, EEF helps to enhance what is being taught in the standard curriculum and provide our children with learning opportunities that would otherwise not be available through the school.
