We need your support, school community members and others concerned with more, not less, educational choices for children. Please stand with us as the parents, students and staff battle together to enable nearly 500 middle and high school MSA-SC students attend their school next academic year. A Save Our School Rally will be held TOMORROW to request extension of the current school for another academic year. At the moment, Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) would like MSA-SC to leave the school facilities which would then be vacant for a year, wherein not only will SCUSD lose nearly half a million dollars in rental income, but also leave the current MSA-SC students struggling to find another school with high quality education!
“The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life.” – Plato
Working together, we can change the lives of ~500 students positively!
What: Save Our School Rally
When: March 4th, 2015, at 3:15 pm
Where: MSA-SC, 2720 Sonoma Place, Santa Clara, CA, 95051 (Google Maps)
Subsequent to the Save Our School Rally at the school, please attend the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) meeting at 5 pm TOMORROW to urge the SCCOE to reconsider allowing deliberation on the alternative charter (STEM Academy) petition before March 15 so as to allow the Request for Facilities under Prop 39 to meet the March 15 deadline. Considering the petition after March 15 (the current date is March 18) will negate the charter’s Facilities petition deadline under Prop 39, not allow the school to open for academic year 2015- 16 and negatively impact close to 500 students.
“Education is all a matter of building bridges.” – Ralph Ellison
Again, we look forward to your support! Let’s go and build some bridges; let the children come first as we (staff and parents and MSASCPTO) work together with SCCOE and SCUSD.
