Ever wonder why the Earth School gets less funding than many other public schools? Ever wish that the Parent Association wasn't strapped with raising so much cash every year? A big factor is that the Department of Education only gives us 87% of our Funding, while other schools randomly get 100% or more.
Our PA and SLT want your help in demanding 100% of our funding. This Thursday, 2/15, there will be a Town Hall with Chancellor Fariña. Come represent our school community and let your voice be heard. Here's how you can help:
- Submit a question to firstname.lastname@example.org about "Fair Student Funding," such as, "How is it "fair" to give some schools all of their full "Fair Student" funding and others only a percentage of it resulting in losses of over $200,000 per year!?"
- RSVP and attend the Town Hall Meeting on Thursday to show the Chancellor our concern about this issue. Childcare will be provided, please register via the link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cec-1-town-hall-with-the-chancellor-tickets-42672081344
