2019 is off to a memorable start for many reasons. Our new site, the Silver Park Campus, is currently under construction and progressing well. We are excited for its eventual opening and look forward to regularly updating our current and prospective families on this significant project. In addition, Gabriella and Franco had the opportunity to attend a couple of inaugurations for friends who were elected to new government offices.
At one of these inaugurations, Gabriella and Franco spent part of one morning at San Francisco’s City Hall. This event celebrated the inauguration of District 10’s new supervisor, Shamann Walton, a true leader and excellent friend. As you may know, the Silver Park Campus is located in District 10, and we are enthusiastic about our new supervisor with whom Franco had previously worked on key education funding issues in San Francisco. Along with his team, Supervisor Walton is a champion for District 10, education matters and children.
Franco and Supervisor Walton chaired the Quality Teacher and Education Act Oversight Committee in fiscal year 2014-15 which was Franco’s final year of his four-year term. During this period, Supervisor Walton was elected to the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) Board and eventually became its President. This oversight committee is responsible for helping ensure that the SFUSD is properly allocating approximately $40 million per year for twenty years on priorities set forth in 2008’s Proposition A. To read more about the implementation of Proposition A, you may refer to this summary prepared by the Stanford University Center for Education Policy:
Franco and Gabriella continue to work tirelessly in support of educational initiatives and all Bay Area families affected by them.
