Writing Letters to the Editor

What we value as a community and what we want our community to look like is a good first step in starting the conversation.

Are people willing to go with the alternative to Proposition 103 and the non-investment in our community?

What will happen when costs continue to exceed revenue and services to the community are completely cut to the bone?

Talk about personal anecdotes and how cuts have been handled in your schools, how they have affected your own children, their classrooms and buildings in which they learn.

Ask your principals the real affect of the cuts, compare past to present, what is now being cut or needs fees paid to continue.
