Source of Income

For the last 5 years, 60-70% of our income has come from our Annual Campaign, 5% from the Bryant Blast, 10 – 12 % from our Silent Auction, and we rely heavily on our fundraising carryover efforts from previous years (15 – 20%). 



Annual Spending

In the last four years, 75% of our spending has gone to PTSA sponsored staff positions at Bryant. 

For Fiscal Year 2020-21, to better address remote learning, we:

  • Increased additional tutoring support.
  • Tech instructor who is tech supporting the Bryant staff.

  • Removed all non-remote spending, including playground supervision.
  • Reduced Artist in Residence spending until we are back to in-person learning.

  • Classroom supplies, field trip support, and other extracurricular activities to enhance learning
  • Families in Need in our community



Staff Wages

About 30% of total staff wages now goes to Math / Reading Specialists. Over the last five years, we have steadily increased our support for Math / Reading Specialists who provide intervention and extension services.  Artist in Residence program spending has been steadily decreased due to Bryant now has a full-time Art Teacher.
