On Fridays We Fight! Stockton Schools Initiative

The Stockton Schools Initiative empowers families to advocate for improved education policies.

The Stockton Schools Initiative (SSI) team works to break down the overwhelming status of our educational system into a discussion in which all  can participate. Students, parents, and concerned community members are able to weigh in on educational statistics and share their perspectives in order to find solutions.

Important policy changes are happening in our school district because of the direct advocacy training provided by SSI. When we learned that 3 out 10 of our high school graduates were eligible for University of California and California State University admission, we agreed this must be fixed! Students and parents learned how to effectively address our school board through community forums and at school board meetings to show how important implementing an A-G requirement is so that all of our high school graduates are eligible for College admission. In January 2019, our school board adopted a “College, Career, and Community Ready Graduation Requirement” policy! You can read the dynamic policy change here.
