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 much does Measure A cost ?
