Dear Supervisor Campbell,
Thank you for your continued support of canyon issues, especially your commitment to help transform Silverado Elementary into a charter school with an environmental focus. Clearly you see the same potential for our school as we do and understand the vital role a local school plays in a community, especially one like ours.
As you know, the OUSD Board of Trustees voted to close Silverado at their March 12, 2009 last meeting.
We hope to persuade them to reconsider their mistake at the upcoming meetings. We hope that OUSD will be known throughout the state as the district which was able to put children above all and the one that was able ride out this tough year without having to close a single school.
We know and you know that our plan for a charter school will not only sustain our community but will provide a long term solution to the crisis the district faces.
Please communicate your support to the trustees of the OUSD and Superintendent Dreier.
Remember to write your letters to OUSD board members (see sidebar on the right). Get your neighbors, friends and family members to do the same.
