Pivot Charter School San Diego has asked the San Marcos Unified School District (SMUSD) to authorize our charter. The SMUSD board members will be reviewing the charter and opening the floor for public comment at their next board meeting on October 17th at 6:30 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for a civics lesson – the students can learn about the public hearing process and see a local governing board in action!
It is VERY, VERY important to the future of our school that we have as many parents/guardians, grandparents, sisters, brothers, students and friends of Pivot San Diego attend this public hearing and show their support.
Upon arrival at the meeting, there will be blue cards available to anyone who wishes to speak on behalf of Pivot. If you fill out a blue card, you will be allowed three minutes during public comment to voice your support for our school. Even if public speaking isn’t your thing, please consider saying something positive about Pivot. This is a great chance to tell SMUSD how awesome our school is and the amazing things we are doing for our families!
The meeting will be held at 6:30 pm in the Media Center of the North County Regional Education Center located at 255 Pico Avenue in the city of San Marcos.
- Gathering Time: If you would prefer to travel as a group, we will meet at 5:30 PM at Pivot San Diego Resource Center located at 1030 La Bonita Drive, Suite 100 in San Marcos. We will have vans/personal cars to take anyone who needs a ride to the meeting. Field trip permission forms will be distributed and will need to be returned for students traveling without their parents. Alternatively, you may join us at the Board meeting at 6:15 pm. Please be prompt. We will leave the school site at 6 pm to head to the meeting. If you plan to join us at the resource center, please RSVP to Adrian Heredia, our Site Coordinator at: AHeredia@pivotcharter.org or call 1-760-591-0217.
- T-Shirts: To show our support, we will hand out Pivot T-shirts to wear to the meeting so the Board sees who we are. If you already have a Pivot T-shirt, please wear it. If you need one and are planning to join us at SMUSD, please come to the resource center to get your T-shirt in advance. If you are gathering at the resource center before the meeting, we will be handing out T-shirts there.
- Pizza: We will also serve pizza at the school at 5:00. Please RSVP so that we have an accurate count for ordering food.
- Community Service: Since this is so important to our Pivot community, we will also offer our high school students 4 hours toward their community service requirements.
Please bring any and everyone you know that supports Pivot! Thank you!!!
