All students have a right to take part in educational activities at school without paying a fee, deposit or other charge. An "educational activity" is an activity offered by a school or school district that is an integral part of a student's education, including, but not limited to, curricular and extracurricular activity. Schools cannot charge or request a deposit for materials, physical education or school uniforms, or graduation caps and gowns that are required to take part in an educational activity.

  • For more details about the rights of parents and guardians, please see Your Child's Education: Things You Should Know
  • For more details on what fees can and cannot be charged at school, please see Assembly Bill No. 1575
  • If you have been charged a fee for an educational activity, you can request a reimbursement and/or file a uniform complaint. If you are a parent and still have questions or concerns about fees, please contact the Office of Family Voice at 415-241-6150.

Donate gently used clothing to support J Serra

J Serra is partnering with Schoola (www.schoola.com). What’s Schoola? It’s a great way to raise funds for our school. Schoola collects pre-loved women's and children’s clothes, preps and sells them online, and gives 40% of the proceeds back to J Serra to help fund programs for our kids. That’s $2 out of every $5 earned back to our school! Simply click on the image to view our very own Schoola landing page where you can request a bag and view our progress and funds earned.

Chinese New Year's at J. Serra. Gung Hay Fat Choy!

To enhance 4th/5th Grader's science studies on Rocks and Minerals, students used iPads to design an iMovie on a field trip to the Apple Store in San Francisco! They worked in teams of two, used a storyboard to plan out their scenes and videotaped each other stating facts about Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic Rocks! Oral presentations in the theater really showcased their hard work. Thank you, Apple crew for a great learning experience!
