A MESSAGE FROM THE PARENT ADVOCACY NETWORK (PAN)
Important Advocacy Moment
Monday April 25 at 7:00pm is the final VSB public consultation session before Trustees vote on the proposed budget for the coming school year.
This proposed VSB Budget reflects 10+ years of administrative and other cuts and NOW more than ever before, this budget will be materially damaging to education in Vancouver and the equity within our system. These $24M in cuts will be detrimental to ALL our children in their classrooms and will be felt for years to come.
Parent Advocacy Network members believe this budget is unsupportable and it’s time to TAKE A STAND!
Once again PAN will be presenting at 7pm (we are #2 on the Agenda) – and this time we are asking Trustees to unite and REJECT the Budget and DEMAND the Government provide adequate and stable funding for public education as is their legal obligation.
We invite all parents/guardians, grandparents, aunts and uncles and families to STAND with us and WEAR RED as a visible indication of protest – BC Budget is in the Black and BC Ed is in the RED – and support the #BCEDINRED campaign
This is our best opportunity to make a visible statement and protest the continued government underfunding.
We NEED your support – Please make an effort to Join us and TAKE A STAND!
When its our turn to present, we ask all those in attendance to STAND UP in their RED!
WHO: Parent Advocacy Network members and all parents/PACs in Vancouver
WHAT: Wear RED and STAND with us
WHEN: 7:00-7:30pm, Mon Apr 25
WHERE: Auditorium/gymnasium at Tupper Secondary School, 419 East 24th Avenue, near Fraser & King Edward/25th
RSVP: Reply YES to this email!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
