BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING

HILLCREST PARENTS MADE AN IMPACT LAST WEEK

Thank you parents!

We had a fantastic turn-out at last week’s in-person Board Meeting which got Hillcrest a shout-out from Director Williams during the meeting. Parents & students attended in person and on zoom, making live comments against school closure in both cases.

IT’S CRUNCH TIME.

WE NEED YOU AT THIS THURSDAY’S BOARD MEETING.

There are only two more board meetings until the election. Plan to join us, and bring friends and/or students! Some parents last week went out for dinner before the meeting and made an evening of it. (Portal is around the corner .) RSVP with Hillcrest via Konstella.

WHY GO?

In the words of last week’s Hillcrest parent attendees…

  • We have a board so totally disengaged from our students and parent community. We need to shake things up in this election.
  • My eyes were opened after attending. I’m so glad I went.
  • It was exhilarating to speak our community’s truth to power!
  • It felt amazing to be part of the community in Oakland, speaking on behalf of all of our students.
