SchoolsRule Provides $700,000 in Funds

2021 Ceremony to Disperse Funds

Last month, SchoolsRule provided $700,000 in funds to Marin public school districts at our 10th annual distribution celebration on October 27th.  We were thrilled to gather in person for the first time in more than 18 months as we disbursed checks to each district foundation on a per student basis and acknowledged our donors who make the funding possible. Thanks to the continued generosity of our donor community, over the past decade, SchoolsRule has distributed a total of nearly $6.2M to districts countywide supporting programs in the areas of literacy, technology, the arts and health.

Program Spotlight:  High School Wellness Program

Highlight High School Wellness Program

As one of SchoolsRule's key areas of support, health programs have become even more critical as we emerge from the pandemic and our schools address the growing social-emotional and physical health needs of our students. Fortunately, with support from SchoolsRule funding, most of Marin's high schools have established on-site Wellness Centers that offer access for all students. These centers provide a layer of much-needed targeted support with a focus on prevention, intervention and postvention activities related to student physical health, mental health, reproductive health and substance use/abuse education while supporting the health, well-being, self advocacy and educational outcomes of all students. SchoolsRule is proud to help support these important services for our high school students!
