Our students need our support. As West Contra Costa Unified School District’s revenue from the state of California continues to decline, all our students are impacted by the loss of funding of critical programs in the classroom and school. The expiration of the local parcel tax in June 2014 means that our students will have even less academic support. What can you do?
Please come to two very important WCCUSD Board of Education meetings at Lovonya DeJean Middle School as the Board considers whether to place a possible revenue measure on the November ballot to address this funding crisis.
At the first meeting on Monday, July 23 at 6:00 p.m., the Board will hear the results of a recent critical survey, gauging the support of voters for a possible parcel tax renewal and increase. At the second meeting on Wednesday, August 1 at 6:30 p.m., the Board will determine if any revenue measures will be on the ballot in November.
Make your voice heard at these two critical meetings! The Board needs to hear from all corners of our community, and hear that instructional support is our highest priority.
Want to help more? Join a grassroots, family-led, community driven effort called Support West County Students to ensure instructional support is our highest priority.
