Attention Residents of California: Help support the creation of a new Charter School for Adult Education!
If you don’t live in California, please DON’T SIGN this! Please signal boost for all your Californian friends, and find out how you can support Adult Education in your area!
Adult Education is one of the programs that has been hit the hardest by recent statewide budget cuts; unfortunately, it is also one of the most critically important and far-reaching educational programs. Help revive Adult Education in an area that has recently lost its main Adult Ed program!
This is a petition for a charter in order to create a new Adult Education school in North Highlands, CA. The Highlands Community Charter School would serve thousands of people, offering programs for high school completion, ESL, and CTE.
Earlier this month, the entire teaching staff of the Twin Rivers Adult School was laid off—the first in a series of steps to begin closing the school down entirely. The Highlands Community Charter School is a solution to the closing of the Twin Rivers Adult School, and an attempt to save Adult Education in the district. There are already several highly-qualified educators ready to step in to teach the programs as soon as the school is funded, and countless students who are desperate for these classes. Time is of the essence! This petition needs to be submitted to the Twin Rivers Unified School District Board of Trustees by April 7th! They will be voting on the charter on the 9th.
Please sign and show the Board that California supports Adult Education and the Highlands Community Charter School! Help us rebuild this critical system!
Hey everyone! Signal boosting this a second time; please pass it along or sign it if you can! This is very important to me and these teachers need our help. Thank you!
