The Be Cool to My School Test-Drive Rally is in its final week, giving local residents a final chance to take part in the fundraiser for local schools.

The campaign, sponsored by the Santa Clarita Valley Auto Dealers Association, was designed to give elementary, junior high and senior high schools a financial boost from the nonprofit association.

"Any time car dealers can help the schools, we're all for it," said Don Fleming, president of the association and owner of Valencia Acura.

The campaign is based on a points system.

Each test drive is worth 100 points for the school of the test-driver's choice. Each vehicle sale earns 1,000 points.

The elementary, junior high and high school with the highest point total at the end of the month will receive $1,000. In total, $3,000 will be given to local schools.

As of Friday, Mitchell Elementary School was in the lead with 2,300 points while Castaic Middle School and Saugus High School led the other categories with 1,300 and 2,000 points, respectively.

With June 1, the official end date to the fundraiser, days away, a total of 19 schools are on the board with at least one test-drive.

As of Friday, the campaign has had 73 test drives and 13 cars sold.
