Info For PTA/PTOs and Site Administrators

As a benefit of each site's enrollment in the Shared Schoolyard Project, each PTA, PTO or Principal Trust Account is entitled to receive $1000 stipend each year to use as they see fit. 

(Note- The Shared Schoolyard transition away from working with the Parks Alliance to distribute PTA Participation funds, to distributing from the SFUSD program administration directly. If you would like to know more about this or have any questions regarding this transition, please contact the program).


In order for your PTA to receive funds, each site’s PTA must complete and submit the attached invoice as an attachment to Amy Randel, RandelA@sfusd.edu (This differs from previous years when no invoice was requested);


Information needed to complete this invoice will be:

  • Your PTA/PTO's vendor id number (Reach out to vendorrequest@sfusd.edu to request your number if unknown)
  • A photo of the gates at your yard

  • List of recurring events on the weekend on your yard


Please note- the PTA receiving funds will need to be an established ‘vendor’ of the district. If your site’s PTA is not, please let us know.

Once have these pieces, the SSY Team will enter vouchers for the PTA and cut a check directly to the PTA. Please allow 4-6 weeks for the funds to be received.
