One Ask for ONE - OIS


State funding, federal funding, and parcel taxes are not enough to fund the programs that make OIS great. For 2020-2021, the additional cost of those programs is $926,000.


The OIS Parents’ Club joined with the other Orinda school Parents’ Clubs and EFO to create the Orinda Network for Education. Now there will only be One 'Ask' - $1,800 per student this year - to help fund OIS.


Whether we are on campus or not, most of our budget -80%- pays for teachers! Your per student donation enables OIS to provide more staff and classes, books and supplies for Core, Math, and Science, all technology, support for electives and so much more:

Art French Public Speaking
Bulldog Theater Green Team Robotics
Character Education Hospitality-Staff Appreciation Science
Choir Instrumental Music Spanish
Computer Graphics Leadership Social Studies (Core)
Counseling Center Library Special Education
Debate Lunchtime Clubs & Sports Technology
Diverse Abilities Maker's Space Web Design
Drama Math WEB Orientation Program
Emergency Prep Promotion & Related Events Woodshop
English (Core) Parent Education Yearbook

We know things will look a bit different this year and some of these programs may not be possible in their normal formats, but we’re doing everything we can to maximize opportunities safely!

The OIS Parents’ Club and ONE are 501(c)(3) organizations. For more information, see ONE FAQs and
