Kids First, Cuts Last

Many parents in the community still do not know that summer school has been cancelled. Some do not understand the irresponsible nature in which this program was cut. Explain to them that this precedent must not be allowed to stand.

We must hold SCUSD and the Board of Education accountable and demand they review the budget line-by-line and research alternatives before cutting essential programs.

Here’s what you can do.

Cancellation of Summer School?

SCUSD has called a special board meeting for tomorrow, June 11. The agenda has an action item that will drastically reduce the SCUSD summer school program.

The staff’s recommendation to the board outlines a need only for 11th and 12th grade summer school, presumably for students who are in need of credit recovery.

The proposal will obliterate remediation instruction for elementary, middle and 9th and 10th grade students.
