Natomas District Seeks Public Support

About three dozen people attended a meeting last night at the invitation of Natomas superintendent Bobbie Plough to discuss ways to support the financially challenged school district.

“I believe we have a creative and vibrant community anxious to mobilize in support of our schools,” wrote Plough, inviting parents and interested community members to the session. “Please join me in developing a plan to provide the financial support that our schools – our children – deserve in order to create a world class educational system for this community.”
Meeting participants brainstormed in small groups and later came together to discuss several suggestions they felt could help the Natomas school district. At the end of the evening, the three top ideas were: facilitating volunteerism, event marketing, and naming rights for businesses.
Former school board candidate, Ryan Herche, attended the meeting and posted a poll on Facebook seeking input on the options discussed. Click here for the poll.
Sign up sheets seeking help to revive the defunct Natomas Schools Foundation and to research and write grants were also circulated. Said Elena Quintero, PTSA president at Inderkum High School, “It was definitely a productive meeting.”
