Big win for small school districts! Gov. Newsom, lawmakers strike deal on $15 billion education construction bond: Derick Lennox, an advocate representing the Small School Districts’ Association, said, “AB 48 will directly benefit small school districts and financial hardship districts — two constituencies that have the most to overcome when building schools. It’s a huge win for more than half the districts in the state.” 🎊🎊📰 http://ow.ly/R6QB50w64Mj

Bay Area Teacher and 2 Santa Cruz High students missing in dive boat tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pacific Collegiate Charter school in Santa Cruz and American High Science teacher in Fremont. As one brother who lost his sister reminds us: Love the people that you have in your life because you don’t know when their time is up," he said. "Let the people in your life know that you love them and just cherish every moment, breath by breath, because it’s really precious."
