Stop the cuts to school safety in Inglewood Unified School District
Times are tough in Inglewood, the ninth School District in
California to be taken over by the State of California, and we still
have a lot of belt-tightening to do. But putting our kids in danger to
balance the budget doesn't make sense, and it's not fair.
Earlier this year workers in the Inglewood Unified School District
started receiving layoff notices. Campus Supervisors are often the
first line of defense for students. They know the kids, their
neighborhoods and their schools. They know, before anyone else, when
something is wrong. Early detection is critical to prevent bullying and
violence in Inglewood schools. Student safety staff can help diffuse
problems before kids get hurt. They're incredibly valuable, and our kids
Inglewood's kids have a right to feel safe at school; it is the only
way they can learn.. We hope that you will make the right decision - to
prioritize school safety. Parents, teachers, school staff, and most
importantly kids, are counting on you.

Everyone agrees that our kids deserve safe
schools. That's why the layoff of Campus Supervisors and eliminating Plant
Manager has caused such an outrage. These staff provide a critical safety
function in the Inglewod's schools – they know the kids and they know when
something is wrong. This is the wrong time to make budget decisions that put
kids in jeopardy.
