Take Action:

If you are interested in submitting a letter to local newspapers, you can use this link to assist you. You can also send a letter to Gov Newsom and legislators and sign a petition to pursue a state testing waiver here. In this time of uncertainty, it is more important than ever that educators’ voices are heard.

 

Thank you for all that you do on behalf of your colleagues, staff, and community at-large.

 

 

 

Best to all of you and your loved ones. Please continue to stay safe and well!

 

 

In Unity-

 

Wendy Eccles 🙂
