    Hello Cherise, I joined the Moms Demand session this evening and am part of the MDUSD. I’m interested in connecting with you to learn more about what’s happening in MDUSD to prevent gun violence in our communities and in our schools.

    At the Foothill PFA meeting, you mentioned possible opportunities to serve and support MDUSD families that have been sorely impacted by covid. Is there a site or person of contact I can connect with to contribute to those efforts?

    Thanks for all your time and efforts in behalf of the MDUSD community.

    I met you yesterday at the Budget Meeting at YVHS

    I made a comment at the meeting regarding State funding for Special Education reimbursements for education services at MDUSD

    I truly feel that our people should mobilize to put pressure on Gov Newsome and Superintendent Thurmond to fully fund Special Education services. 

    As a California citizen and a voter, I feel that we need to implore our Govt officials to take care of the children of our community.

    Hi Mrs. Khaund,

    I am a parent of an 8th grader at Valley View Middle School. I am hearing very sad things about budget cuts at her school that have already started. Most of the clubs (for which I assume the teachers get a little stipend to run) have been shut down, and I just heard that 0 period Jazz Band is potnetially going away. Also, I heard that the beginning band music teacher at College Park won’t be back next year, due to budget cuts. This is disheartening on so many levels, but even more so, its confusing. The state is not in a crisis, there is a plan by Gov. Newsom and funding is set to increase. Incoming Gov. Gavin Newsom will have an advantage that Jerry Brown didn’t have in his first year in office nearly eight years ago: more, not less, money for K-12 schools and community colleges.


    “In its first look at the fiscal year starting July 1, 2019, the Legislative Analyst’s Office is forecasting a $2.4 billion funding increase under Proposition 98, the formula that determines the minimum amount of state revenue for K-14 education.”-https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/11/19/schools-community-colleges-can-expect-modest-increase-in-newsoms-first-budget/


    So what has happened at MDUSD that explains why cuts are coming down. We have finally gotten several years of music education back, only to see the programs take another hit. And the extra clubs and programs offered at VVMS (and I’m sure other Middle schools) offer in irreplacable service to our venuerable pre-teens to help them find their place, their voice and their community of like minded students.


    Please help the parents of MDUSD understand why this is happening in a time of prosperity as well in the year where we are actually being promised more funding than ever before.
