Fully staff in every school, with mental health supports, and transparency on the investment. 

There are also upcoming public meetings about the budget. Your voices can help press for sustainable funding that allows us to address all the issues mentioned during our March 7 action.

  • TELL US YOUR “WHY!” Email Action Letter

Send the superintendent of schools and BOE Trustees an email before May! We’ve created a template where you can add your own reason for wanting sustainable funding for our schools. Does your child have additional needs that are not being met, do they wish they could play an instrument, does the school have leaks when it rains, is the class size too big? Fill in this template with your “why” for sustainable funding for schools here and send it to Dr. Fernandez and the BOE Trustees.

 

Call into a BOE meeting and lend your thoughts during public comment. We’ve created a templated script that you can use...or edit to help make it your own! Read it here.
