MEDIA ADVISORY FROM THE SAN DIEGO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT: Senator Hueso Introduces Bill to Protect Schools from Unfair Energy Rate

Editors and reporters: The following press conference is being held at one of our schools. Your coverage is welcomed.

 

Media Advisory

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

April 28, 2016

CONTACT: Tanya Aldaz Duggan

W (619) 409-7690   C (619) 518-9177

 

Senator Hueso Introduces Bill to Protect Schools from Unfair Energy Rate

 

WHO:            State Senator Ben Hueso

 

WHAT:          Join Senator Ben Hueso, County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Randolph Ward, Deputy Superintendent of Lemon Grove School District Gina Potter, County Assistant Superintendent of Business Lora Duzyk,  and San Diego Unified Chief Operations Officer Drew Rowlands as they discuss the importance and benefits of Senate Bill 1041 which is aimed at protecting schools from paying high electricity bills.

 

“School funds should be used on textbooks, technology and innovative implementations which will improve our schools and will help educate our children,” stated Senator Ben Hueso.  “Our schools are instead trying to pay their high electric bills to keep the light switches on in the classroom.  Ultimately, the ones paying the price are our children.  We must protect our schools from unfair rate increases and outrageous charges on their bills.”

 

Senate Bill 1041 requires the state’s energy utilities to develop and implement a rate for electric service specific to K-12 public schools.  The intent is that it will reduce the amount of money public schools spend on electricity, thereby freeing resources for the education of children. 

 

"Senator Hueso's SB 1041 would put an end to a string of consecutive rate increases that have forced schools to cannibalize instructional budgets to cover the cost of keeping the lights on,” said County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Randolph Ward. “Our schools don’t want special treatment, just an appropriate resolution that takes into account a school’s unique energy usage, fixed budget and duty of meeting the needs of the county’s children."

 

WHEN:          FRIDAY, April 29, 2016

                        At 10:30 am

 

WHERE:        Sherman Elementary

                        301 22nd Street (In front of school)              

San Diego, CA 92102

NEWS RELEASE -- SD Unified High Schools Score in US News Rankings

NEWS RELEASE from the San Diego Unified School District, April 19, 2016

SD UNIFIED HIGH SCHOOLS SCORE IN US NEWS RANKINGS

SAN DIEGO -- Three San Diego Unified high schools have received the prestigious Gold Award, with nine receiving Silver Awards in the 2016 national rankings of America's Best High Schools by US News and World Report magazine.

The School of International Studies at San Diego High, La Jolla High and Scripps Ranch High each received the highest recognition, the Gold Award, given to the top 500 of the nation's more than 28,000 high schools. US News annually evaluates schools based on their students' college readiness.

Silver Awards went to University City High, Pt. Loma High, Serra High, San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA), Patrick Henry High, Kearny High School of Science Connections and Technology, Mission Bay High, Clairemont High, San Diego Early/Middle College, Mira Mesa High, Morse High, and the School of Science and Technology at San Diego High.

"This is well-deserved national recognition for our high schools," said Superintendent Cindy Marten. "Every day, our students, teachers and staff are working hard to learn and prepare for the future. Their success is a cause for celebration for not only those campuses, but everyone in our district."

Of the 28,561 high schools analyzed by US News, only 6,000 received gold, silver or bronze awards. According to the magazine, it evaluates schools based on four steps.

"The first three steps ensured that the schools serve all of their students well, using their performance on the math and reading parts of their state proficiency tests and graduation rates as the benchmarks," the magazine writes on its website. "For those schools that made it past the first three steps, a fourth step assessed the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work."

Media Advisory: Report States Increased Physical Activity During School Day Can Boost Academic Achievement

Media Advisory from the San Diego Unified School District, April 18, 2016

 

Report: Increased Physical Activity During School Day Can Boost Academic Achievement

 

Reporters/Editors: You’re invited to the following press conference hosted by San Diego Unified, Mission Readiness – Military Leaders for Kids and The Alliance for a Healthier Generation

 

WHO:            

Speaking at press conference and available for interviews:

-  Rear Admiral (Ret.) James Rodman, U.S. Navy & Mission: Readiness member

-  San Diego Unified School District Area 5 Superintendent Mitzi Merino

-  Lynn Barnes-Wallace, San Diego Unified School District Physical Education Coordinator

 

VISUAL:       

Following the press conference, Florence Elementary School students will provide physical activity demonstrations.

 

WHAT:         

Education, community, and military leaders will gather Tuesday, April 19, to release a research report on the importance of increasing physical activity during the school day. In California and across the U.S., more than one-third of children and adolescents are classified as being overweight or obese. Further, obesity has become the leading medical disqualifier for military service.

 

The report, “A Roadmap for Increasing Physical Activity in California Schools,” by Mission: Readiness – Military Leaders For Kids, highlights physical activity best practices that are not only effective at getting kids active, but can also help them concentrate and perform better in the classroom.

 

The Active Schools/Active Minds Initiative, created by The Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program with support from The California Endowment, is one such best practice. The Initiative provides free guidance, technical assistance, and training to schools. Specifically, it offers online assessment and action plan tools that provide a customized roadmap for schools to increase physical activity and improve physical education programs.

 

Officials from the San Diego Unified School District will highlight their district-wide efforts with IMPACT (Increasing Movement and Physical Activity in Class Time), a physical education program designed to keep local elementary students moving despite the lack of physical education classes in underserved San Diego schools. Increasing physical activity is one aspect of how San Diego Unified is improving the health of all students. The District is also providing healthy school food, trauma-informed care, and other services to make health happen at San Diego Unified.

 

WHEN:         

Tuesday, April 19, 2016, 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. PST

 

WHERE:       

Florence Elementary School, 3914 1st Avenue, San Diego, CA 92103

 

CONTACT:

-  Meghan Moroney: 415-450-1913 or mmoroney@missionreadiness.org

-  Laura O’Connor: 202-360-2559 or laura.oconnor@healthiergeneration.org

 

ABOUT:        

Mission: Readiness – Military Leaders For Kids is the national security nonprofit organization of over 600 retired admirals, generals, and other retired senior military leaders calling for smart investments in America’s children. It is a part of Council for a Strong America, the umbrella nonprofit for five membership organizations comprising the unique and powerful voices of retired military, business, law enforcement, faith and sports, working together to prepare young Americans for success in school and in life.

 

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation, founded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation, empowers kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits. The Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program helps school and district leaders to create and sustain healthier environments nationwide, including working with more than 2,000 schools in California.
