SCSD is working toward a Budget Stabilization Plan to reduce expenditures by $2.5 million over the next two years. Superintendent Harmeier recently hosted community meetings for parents, staff and community to learn more.
The PTA Coordinating Council is committed to supporting high-quality education in the San Carlos School District. As such, we are heavily involved in the budget discussions to ensure cuts do not have a negative impact on our students’ academic performance nor the whole child education our community so dearly values.
We encourage parents, educators and community members to join us in advocating for our students by:
- Learning more about the budget situation by reviewing the work of the Superintendent’s Budget Advisory Committee.
- Attending PTA Meetings, School Board Meetings, and engaging with the 17th District PTA of San Mateo County
- Appealing to local and state officials to address the under-funding of California public schools. Contacts and sample letter here.
- Joining the Stand Up for Public Schools rally on May 8, 2019
