EMPOWER OUR COMMUNITIES

Public schools are the anchors of the community.

 

  • Build Community Schools to expand parent engagement, broaden the curriculum, and increase social services at our highest-needs schools.

  • Increase parent and educator decision making by giving local school leadership councils control over how funds are used at schools.

  • Require charter school operators authorized by the district to prove equal access, transparency, and due process rights for all parents and students.

  • Increase administrator accountability for school safety and discipline, and invest in positive behavior support through restorative justice.

  •  Use the district’s leverage and demands on civic leaders to make improvements in affordable housing, access to green space, immigrant rights, and other community issues.
