Informational Breakfast

Join us for a free breakfast for a presentation by, Campaign Manager, Derek Timm who founded Save Our Schools Scotts Valley eight years ago to combat the lack of state funding for our schools, and led two successful campaigns: Measure K to retain teachers and keep class sizes manageable, and Measure A allowing us to rebuild the aging middle school. 

In his role as President of the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation, he helped to raise nearly $1 million to fund school libraries, expand counseling services, provide technology in the classroom, and underwrite advanced teacher training. He is Chair of the Scotts Valley Planning Commission and Candidate for City Council. 

The State’s funding formulas endanger our schools. Sacramento decisions make Scotts Valley Unified School District the 9th lowest funded (out of 344) K-12 district statewide and the lowest in Santa Cruz County. Indeed, while every other school district in the County was able to give their teachers modest pay raises, the Scotts Valley School District had to eliminate nine teaching positions this past year.

You will learn:
How does Measure A save our schools? 
How much does Measure A cost ?
Where will the funds go?

Hosted by Scotts Valley Chamber of Commerce

Come learn more about Measure A on the upcoming November ballot with Scotts Valley Educational Foundation President and Save our Schools Campaign Manager Derek Timm!

Did you know that Scotts Valley Schools rank among the top in the state and boast a 96% graduation rate, with more than 95% of those graduates going on to higher education? And, did you know that there is a direct correlation to lower crime and higher property values in communities with great schools?

Did you know that all Scotts Valley schools (Vine Hill, Brook Knoll, SVMS and SVHS) are at risk of teacher and staff layoffs and school program cuts next year if Measure A is not approved? SVUSD already cut nine teaching positions this year, reduced class offerings and eliminated the middle school’s Academy Program. Measure A will prevent further cuts to our core programs and the loss of more teachers.
