NEWS RELEASE: San Diego Unified’s Board of Education to Consider Endorsing Proposed Senate Bill 30

NEWS RELEASE

San Diego Unified's Board of Education to Consider Endorsing Proposed Senate Bill 30
Legislation prohibits contracting with those providing services to the federal government for construction of a wall



SAN DIEGO (April 24, 2017) - On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, the San Diego Unified School District's board members will consider endorsing California State Senator Ricardo Lara's proposed Senate Bill 30 which would prohibit the state from awarding or renewing a public contract with any person who provides goods or services to the Federal Government for construction of a wall, fence, or barrier along California's Southern Border.

It is Senator Lara's belief that Senate Bill 30 will reaffirm California's longstanding commitment to America's values of inclusion, diversity, and freedom from oppression.

With an endorsement, San Diego Unified would send the message that its Board of Education believes a proposed border wall between California and Mexico would do serious economic, social and environmental harm to its students and the larger San Diego community.

The bill would require any federally funded infrastructure project along California's southern border that exceeds a cost of $1 billion and that would harm California's environment - such as endangered species of wildlife and river watersheds, or California's economy - through trade and tourism, to first be approved by a majority of the voters in a statewide general election.

If passed, Senate Bill 30 would go into effect on January 1, 2018 and prohibit the state from awarding or renewing any contract with any person providing services to the federal government for the construction of a federally funded infrastructure project wall, fence, or other barrier along California's southern border. As defined, that applies both at the time of bid or proposal of a new contract for goods or services, or at the time of the renewal of an existing contract for goods or services.

San Diego Unified's school board members are slated to discuss and vote on the matter at tomorrow evening's regularly scheduled school board meeting - 5 p.m. at the Education Center, 4100 Normal Street in San Diego.

San Diego Unified's Superintendent Heads to State Capitol
On the agenda: visiting state leaders and calling for increased education funding

SAN DIEGO (April 20, 2017) – San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten will travel to Sacramento this morning to meet with state leaders on education funding. California is currently ranked 46th in the nation on per pupil funding, and San Diego Unified is one of many districts across the state facing a spending shortfall for next year.

"This is the best of times and the worst of times for schools across our state," Marten said. "We've seen amazing growth in the graduation rate and student academic achievement. At the same time, teachers and parents are frustrated to be facing large deficits, which threaten this progress."

Data released this month from the state Department of Education shows San Diego Unified has the highest graduation rates of any big-city district in the state. The district has also made strong gains in closing the achievement gap faced by persistently underserved students: Latino, African American and others.

"As education leaders, we understand what works for students, and results show San Diego Unified's strategies are working. This is not the time to cut corners on our students' success," Marten said.

While at the state Capitol, Marten will meet with the staff to Governor Brown, the California Department of Finance, and key staff to the Senate and Assembly Budget committees to discuss a myriad of issues including budgets, closing the achievement gap, and accountability. Marten praised the Governor and Members of the San Diego legislative caucus for their efforts to boost education funding.

The search for increased state education funding comes at an important time for school districts, which are hoping for higher education spending in the Governor's revised budget in May. Revenue results for the last month showed stronger than expected growth in state income tax returns, raising speculation further increases in state support for education is forthcoming.
