We are teachers, parents, students and community members committed to public education, a publicly and fairly funded school system responsive to families and communities.

During the campaign to Stand Up For All Students, we engaged the community in many different ways in order to educate them about what was going on in our district, but also to find out what their hopes and dreams and goals were for the district. Many things were taken into consideration in creating the vision for the Schools Our Students Deserve

  • Thousands of one on one conversations with educators, parents, students and community members were held
  • Round-table discussions with community partners and allies
  • More than four hundred responses to a survey at the Take Back Our Schools rally in May of 2015
  • Data from over thirteen thousand responses to the district’s 2014 Community Budget Survey

Through these processes and analyzing the data and feedback, the Schools Our Students Deserve Vision was created.
