This letter is from State Senator Loni Hancock, whose grandchild attended our school. Senator Hancock asks for our help in securing important organizations in K-12 education, such as the California Arts Council. Given recent problems in securing funding for the Arts Council by a 2/3 majority, she asks us to show support for SCA15, a constitutional amendment that reduces the threshold required to secure funding for groups like the California Arts Council to half. The legislation will help secure state investment in the arts in public education, a value close to Peralta's heart! Click on the image to read the letter.
