As local public school parents, we know our children need a great public education to thrive in life and reach their goals. However, we live within the West Contra Costa Unified School District, where too many children and families do not have access to a quality public education.
Hoping to fill this critical gap, Summit Public Schools applied to open a small college-preparatory public school for fall 2014. Summit believes every child deserves the opportunity to attend a school that prepares them for success. We agree.
In recent weeks, we have been joining with parents, neighbors and community members to support Summit and its plan to open a successful public school to the school district. Summit represents a fresh and powerful opportunity to give every child in the district access to a high-quality public school and a great education no matter their background or neighborhood.
