Legislative Round Table – Save the Date

Thursday November 16
6:30 pm – 7:00 pm–  Meet & Greet
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Legislative Round Table
FUHSD Professional Learning Ctr (rear building)
Fremont Union High School District Office,
589 W Fremont Ave, Sunnyvale [map] [campus map]
RSVPs appreciated, but not required.
This year’s Legislative Round Table will explore three topics:
  • Adequate funding: Even with the Prop 55 extension of Prop. 30 taxes, our funding is below average, and California’s schools rank in the bottom 5. LCFF improves equity, but does not address adequacy. How can we restore long-term increased stable funding for our children’s schools?
  • Raising Teacher Status: In countries with high-performing schools, teachers are better trained, better paid, better supported, and better respected than in the US. How can we change the way we view the teaching profession, so that we can better recruit and retain and properly compensate our children’s teachers?
  • Early Childhood Education: Santa Clara County’s Superintendent of Schools says the County Office’s work on early learning is its highest priority project. How can we improve access to high quality, affordable, early learning for allof California’s children?
Come discuss these topics with our State Senators & Assembly Members!
