As part of a national Day of Action, Lake Elsinore Teachers Association (LETA) members, support staff, administrators and parents participated in rallies and walk-ins at schools throughout the 144 square mile district. Organized by LETA and the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools, walk-ins took place in public schools nationwide. Locally, Lake Elsinore Teachers Association has partnered with the school board to educate the community about the need for improving technology in the 22,000 student district.
LETA members embraced the May 4th Star Wars Day “May the Fourth be With You” theme and distributed flyers in support of a local education bond measure. LETA President Bill Cavanaugh spoke to the 25 educators at Temescal Canyon High School in thanks, stating, “This is about reclaiming our schools and showing parents that we care about the quality of education that every student receives in this community.”
Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools comprises parents, students, teachers, educational support professionals and community members united around a shared vision for supporting and improving our public schools. They value the input of all stakeholders in our nation’s schools, particularly the voices of community members, teachers and other public school workers who for far too long have been excluded from the decision-making process.
