Help Us Advocate for Better Education Funding

The Minnesota Legislature wraps up its session on Monday. Ask friends and family to contact their representatives throughout Minnesota to advocate for 100 percent funding of special education programs. If they close the Special Education Cross-Subsidy, that means they will reduce the gap between what school districts are required to provide and what the state actually funds. It would free up general use funds for districts to put into other pressing needs. Find yours or your friends/families' representatives here.


Tell MPS to Increase Bancroft's Budget by 2-3 percent

Our 2022-23 school budget is under review now and slated for approval on June 13. Let's ask MPS to increase our funding by at least $80,000 to be able to fully fund all 15 classroom teachers. Another $52,000 would replace at .5 licensed position that we lost. Email us at to be added to our list of active families who can help us contact the district.


Bancroft PTO works to enhance the students experiences at the school and act as a parent/caregiver advocate. We organize events that bring our community together to engage in issues that impact students and their learning experience. The Bancroft PTO conducts fundraisers throughout the school year to support the students by funding teachers' requests for things not covered by MPS.

Bancroft PTO meetings are the second Monday of the month at 5:30-7pm via Zoom. AnyBancroft parent and caregiver can bring discussion items and can vote to direct PTO actions.
