The Irvine Public Schools Foundation (IPSF) has been providing millions of dollars in funding to the Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) for 25 years, supporting STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) initiatives. This year, the IPSF is ready to expand its funding for essential programs such as teaching music to all children, STEAM initiatives, strong extracurricular and summer programs, grants to teachers to use innovative teaching methods, and funding for sports coaches and school nurses. The IPSF also hosts several events throughout the year, such as OC STEAM Fest, The Resort at Peli reception, and Irvine Youth Sports. In addition to these events, a group of students from six Irvine high schools spent last school year building a pint-sized satellite called IRVINE01. Local Education Agencies (LEAs) must report any CARES Act funds they have received.
These funds must be tracked and reported separately from the CRRSA Act and the ARP Act funds. The California Department of Education (CDE) provides detailed information on reporting requirements on its website. Reporting deadlines are also available on the federal stimulus funds reporting web page. To report on the use of ESSER I funds, use the stimulus funding reporting request. The IPSF includes links to PDF files and digital copies of the completed Form 990 documents in its raw summary data.
This consists of the separate publication by the IRS of Form 990 documents processed by the agency, which is regularly updated. To ensure educational excellence in Irvine schools, it is important to track and report on the use of funds from the IPSF accurately and efficiently. This will help ensure that all students have access to quality education and resources.
