PSS Stops School-organized Fundraisers

Posted on the 14 February 2011 by Mregina @justfundraising

Moneth Deposa ( : The Public School System has ordered a stop to all school-organized fundraisers in and outside school campuses. PSS also gave full authorization to the Parents-Teachers-School Associations to spearhead all fundraising campaigns, albeit only for specific and PSS-approved projects. At the same time, a full accounting and tracking of all the schools’ non-appropriated funds is now being conducted by PSS to make sure that administrators and PTSAs are doing things right.

PSS finance director Richard Waldo disclosed this last Friday during the parents summit held in Tanapag Elementary School where he briefed participants of the importance of “accountability” in the system. For many years, public schools have conducted fundraisers for specific projects and other purposes such as class educational trips and school improvement plans. These fundraisers are mostly done through selling snacks inside the campus. Waldo admitted that due to these fundraising practices, a lot of students were provided non-nutritious foods on campus which are not part of PSS’ healthy and wellness program. More..
