Meetings are held monthly to discuss and vote how best to spend Encinitas Educational Foundation money for the benefit of the specific school and its Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) .  Because each school provides a unique educational experience, this model of site specific spending enhances the eclectic culture and educational experience offered at each of EUSD’s distinguished schools.
