Public Education

At our regional convening in 2015, residents of Del Norte cried out for support as students and parents of one of the lowest preforming school districts in the state, and our community committed to work together to achieve a quality education, appropriate curriculum and equitable facilities. Students in our region deserve to have healthy school lunches, accountable and dependable school board trustees, adequate recreation facilities, culturally appropriate curriculum, a restorative justice discipline model and much more, so that they can be successful both in school and after graduation.
