This site features videos from parents and residents, research on schools’ consolidation, and extended facts concerning the academic performance of local students. Additionally, in 2011, Stand for Children began surveying its members and the community on their opinions of what is needed for a successful merger. Survey results are currently being released on the website. Survey findings and campaign updates will also be presented to the Unified School Board to share respondents’ beliefs on key priorities that should be established to ensure that all local children receive high-quality education in the new district.
The final key component of the campaign is to ensure the best possible candidates are elected to the school board in August 2012. Stand for Children will be endorsing candidates in this race that support a comprehensive plan for consolidation that focuses on increasing student achievement and placing an effective teacher in front of every student. Please join the campaign today and contribute financially to ensure consolidation results in an education system that has high expectations for all children.
