Hello FPCS Parents/Guardians,
Recently new legislation has been proposed which would severely impact the funding and operations of our school. The devastating restrictions in AB 1316 would limit the total enrollment of FPCS to less than 200 students, eliminate the option for FPCS to serve students outside of Santa Barbara county, reduce the per pupil funding to a percentage equal to the amount of time a student spends in the classroom, and remove FPCS’s ability to provide flexible blended learning models to meet the individual needs of students. The bill is currently in the Assembly Appropriations Committee and the State Assembly could vote on it as early as May 24th.
We need your help voicing opposition to AB 1316 over the next two weeks. Our charter advocates have created easy ways for teachers, parents, and community members to send letters to legislators. If you have a minute to complete one or more of the messages below it would be greatly appreciated. More information can be found at on the PDF attached for additional opportunities for advocacy for FPCS will be shared as they become available. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your support.
