We have had quite a bit of information and parent groups talk about the new State of California requirement for allocating school funding locally. Many parents have expressed deep concern that after school programs for middle school students must be addressed as statistics show the after school hours to be the time period youth tend to get into more trouble. And we have teachers and parents concerned that performing arts are not being funded and we all recognize the importance of art and appreciation in our lives is part of being a well rounded responsible person.
After Monday evening’s meeting, in which about 100 folks showed up, parents and guardians were able to come together and share their ideas that are important to them. Superintendent Hogan agreed to set up a survey to allow those who were not able to attend the opportunity to have their voices heard as well. Here is the link and information on that survey. Please share this with your neighbors and parents of school children so our district and our schools can provide the very best for our students. More information is available on the district website HERE USE THE OUTREACH AND SPEAK UP!
SURVEY DEADLINE IS APRIL 9TH!!
