Parent Campaign Receives Twin Rivers Support

Recognizing the State’s fiscal condition and its impact on public education monies, the Twin Rivers Unified School District board of trustees is endorsing the efforts of Support California Kids.

Support California Kids is a grassroots movement of parents, grandparents, guardians and concerned community members committed to protecting the future of California’s six million public school students.

Twin Rivers, like many California school districts, is being forced to reduce a significant percentage of its budget due to cuts to our state’s educational budget. This year, Twin Rivers lost 38 million dollars due to state budget cuts, with a projected 36 million loss in funding for the upcoming school year. It operates Regency Park Elementary and Smythe Academy in the Natomas area.

“Our families deserve to know how much funding is being eliminated and what we can do to work together to prevent any further cuts and provide local school districts flexibility,” said Board President Michelle Rivas.

Support California Kids was started by families in the Elk Grove Unified School District and is now reaching out to families throughout Sacramento to broaden the movement. The group will host a community meeting in the Twin Rivers district 6:30 p.m. Feb. 23 at Village School, 6845 Larchmont Dr, North Highlands.
