Why attend the school board meeting at West Shores on the 26th?

Last week, it appeared our community was going to "pack the house" at the CVUSD Board Meeting to be held at West Shores HS on the 26th.

Since closing West Shores is not an issue now, fewer people are planning on attending. Here is why we still need to "pack the house".

First, we need to show that community support for West Shores is real and strong. A huge crowd, expressing appreciation will go a long way towards validating claims of community support.

Second, the decision to take West Shores off the possible cut list was a CONSENSUS agreement, not an ACTION ITEM vote. It is not likely--but it is possible--the board could reverse the decision if confronted by extreme difficulty in balancing the budget.

Third, the school board is scheduled to make some budget decisions--possibly some cuts--at the West Shores meeting. Even if they don't put West Shores back on the table, some of the other possible cuts could have serious consequences for the West Shores communities.

It would not be an overstatement to suggest attending the school board meeting this time may be one of the best things we will ever do, to support our children's future. I hope everyone will be there.
