• Cardiff SEA Logo


    The SEA is an organization comprised of parent volunteers, teachers and school staff whose goal is to raise money for the current and future students of Cardiff and Ada Harris schools. In many ways, the SEA is similar to a Parent Teacher Association (PTA). 


    The SEA is actively involved in fundraising efforts that allow us to directly invest money into the enhancement and enrichment of Cardiff Schools. Our efforts, in partnership with the Cardiff School District, ensure specialized programs that improve the quality of our children's education and enable the Cardiff School District to maintain small class sizes.   

    What We Fund 

    Cardiff SEA raises funds to pay salaries, keep class sizes small, and provide an enriched curriculum for your child.  Superintendent Jill Vinson created a detailed SEA Funding Overview (4.87 Mb PDF) that you can view. We support teacher salaries for programs such as:

    • STEAM
    • Physical Education
    • Music
    • Garden 
    • Spanish
    Cardiff SEA also provides funds for teacher mini-grants and 6th grade camp scholarships.

    Traditional school funding is not sufficient to continue our district programs at their current level. Additional fundraising efforts are necessary to supplement and maintain these programs. 


    Being involved is different for all of us, whether it be donating your time and/or money to a fundraiser or being on The SEA Board. Come to a meeting, volunteer at a function or make a contribution.

    We welcome all to participate!
