Working Together to Better Education in South Stockton, CA with the Reinvent South Stockton Coalition Education Committee
What brings people together twice a month for almost a year to talk about education and the action it takes to improve it? Respect, commitment, and love for our community.
The Reinvent South Stockton Coalition “aims to empower its residents to transform the community through improving safety, education, housing, jobs, and health.”
In April 2015, Reinvent South Stockton Coalition (RSSC) held a community summit at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton, CA. I attended one of the breakout groups that focused on education. After the summit, the community was invited to continue the conversation by attending the Education Committee meetings. And we have!
We meet twice a month at the S.T.A.N.D Office located at 1209 E 8th St, Stockton, CA 95206 at 6 pm. Our meetings are engaging and family friendly! Everyone is welcomed to join us.
We’ve recently launched our first project, Local Legends, which identified ways to enhance the educational experience of our students. Local Legends are nominated Stocktonians who are willing to share their professions and experience to collaborate with classroom curriculum. Click here for more information and to nominate a Stocktonian.
The Education Committee recognizes the need to empower families. With this in mind, we are now focusing our discussions on the Stockton Unified School District’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). Together we are diving deep into the LCAP to better understand it and how it equates improvement for our schools with the greatest need.
Join us! Our next meeting will be March 28th at 6:00 pm.
