Parents and community members! Everyone is invited to join us for the next Oakland Tech Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) general meeting on Monday, Jan. 8 at 7 PM in the library (by the main entrance on Broadway) — the very first day back from Winter Break.
As many of you know, our school is grappling with a $400,000 cut in its funding for January through June; that will mean cuts in our supplies budget (to zero), library hours, and more. On Jan. 8, we will get a primer on how state and federal education funding works.
Meanwhile, to soften the blow, the PTSA has beefed up its annual fund drive. Learn more here about how to give, or drop a note to email@example.com to reach PTSA president Laura Impellizzeri with your ideas for enhancing community support for our school.
Also on the agenda for Jan. 8 is a conversation about longstanding staffing and budgeting challenges confronting our special education students, staff, and families.
Finally, please remember to attend the PTSA annual auction on March 3 at the California Ballroom in downtown Oakland. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can donate or help with this wonderful event!
