CFT launches community schools training program

The CFT has launched a training program following Governor Newsom’s extraordinary allocation of $2.8 billion to expand existing community schools and establish new ones. According to CFT President Jeff Freitas, “This is a national effort, and California now has the largest amount of funding in the nation for community schools. These funds will assist nearly 1,000 community schools in our state.” The governor expanded the Community Schools Partnership Program in the state budget for 2021-22 by using one-time Prop 98 monies. The funds can be used through 2028. The program is a grant-based and schools will have to apply for the funding. The CFT is working to secure broad stakeholder committees in the regulations now being developed, including professional input from educators, staff, and their unions.

Message from 5/18/21 School Board meeting:I would first like to show appreciation to all certificated staff. They have worked tirelessly all year long through every transition from Distance Learning, to Hybrid, to what we are doing now. They worked outside of their duties to place markers on playgrounds, created ways to keep kids safe and distanced, and made sure that there were very few outbreaks in their classroom. Our SDC classes at both the secondary and elementary levels have had the most exposure with some classes shutting down this year. Their dedication to their students' learning and IEP goals has been nothing less than exceptional. We thank all of those workers for being full time all year long. Sacrificing everything on behalf of your students I would also like to thank all of my school nurses who have been diligent in preserving the health of our students. Contact tracing until the wee hours as well as doing their normal daily duties. We thank you nurses for all of your work.All of these workers have done nothing but worked tirelessly for students all year. SDC has been in person all year, Elementary has been in person since September, Secondary November. Prior to that, these professionals have made contact with parents, have created new uses and ways to deliver curriculum, have spent their summers and free time trying to better their craft and reach out to students. These employees are my heroes. They have done all of this with very little communication. They have made every transition happen even though the materials needed for that transition did not show up on time. They did this despite the media and some groups who made degrading comments on their work and misrepresenting the work that they do. All of this because they love their students and their job.Thank you, certificated staff. NMFT honors you, your work, your health, and your dedication ... See MoreSee Less
