Keep class sizes low in Pleasanton
Original post made by Christina Hicks, Old Towne, on May 11, 2011
Below is information on the effort to keep class sizes from going from 25:1 to 30:1 next year in Pleasanton:
A group of parents is exploring the feasibility of keeping class sizes at 25:1 next year, but we have to act fast! We've been quite honestly overwhelmed by the positive response so far!
We propose the following:
Gather pledges - We don't want any money yet - just a name, contact information and an amount that would be donated for keeping class sizes in K-3 at 25-1 for next year.
We plan to set up a website so that people can input their information privately and we'll provide information on the amounts required to move forward. Any pledged amount would be great, we are aiming for a high participation rate.
Based on the amount pledged, we can determine with the PUSD to what extent we can save CSR. Regardless, if there is not enough "pledged contribution" or the pledges cannot be guaranteed to save CSR at any level, we do not move forward and no one has paid anything towards this effort.
This effort is in addition to CORE (please go to www.ppie.org for more information) and we hope people can contribute to all the proposed fundraising efforts.
Just email our group with "I'm in" if you'd like more info or would like to get involved!
