    How is BHEF Different than PTA? 

    • BHEF and PTA are different. BHEF funds instructors and staff, provides training and major expense items the school and students need.  That’s what BHEF provides. You might remember the PTA function from your own school days. Then, extra parent support was all the school needed. Today, California public schools need much more. BHEF...always working towards your child's educational excellence!
