The district can amend its plan over the summer, provided it holds public hearings before doing so. But summer is a difficult time for parents and students to attend meetings, and so a coalition of community groups from West Contra Costa will attend the Board meeting tonight to ask the Board to make sure parents and students have a meaningful opportunity to comment on the Board’s allocations. Thanks to legislation passed in 2013 creating a new planning process, school boards must take local priorities into account when allocating funding. The coalition hopes to ensure that WCCUSD will act in a spirit of transparency and listen to the needs of the community.
