TVUSD would like to invite all parents, students, staff and community members to join us for an exciting NEW town hall gathering specifically designed to include all schools in a specific region of the district (North, Central, and South). This new format will allow you to connect with families and staff serving all elementary, middle and high schools within your feeder school zone and discuss important issues about your child’s education. Less meetings for you to attend and more collaboration. This new program is called the CAP and will focus on communication, student achievement, plans and school funding.
We hope you will join us and represent your child’s school on at the scheduled region meeting.
If you cannot attend this event, additional gatherings have been scheduled in other regions and you are welcome to attend.
Attached is a flyer with information about the upcoming meetings. All meeting information can be located on the webpage: http://www.tvusd.k12.ca.us/cap

Did you ever say to yourself, “There Ought to be a law…”?
This month California State Senator Jeff Stone (R-Riverside County) is launching his second annual “There Ought to be law” contest for high school students in the 28th Senate District.
The district, which is entirely in Riverside County, stretches from the vineyards of the Temecula Valley to the Colorado River and includes the cities of Blythe, Canyon Lake, Cathedral City, Coachella, Desert Hot Springs, Indian Wells, Indio, Lake Elsinore, La Quinta, Murrieta, Temecula, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Wildomar.
Last year our office received more than 70 entries from high school students across the district.
Alyson White, a senior at Rancho Mirage High School, was last year’s winner for her bill to increase the penalties for those abuse animals.
Senator Stone introduced her bill, SB 1395, and Alyson and her mother were guests of the Senator in Sacramento in April 2016 when Alyson testified before a Senate committee.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our students to actually participate in the legislative process.
Attached please find a press release, flyer and a link to the Senator’s website -- http://stone.cssrc.us/content/there-ought-be-law --where the entry form can be found. Students can fill out the form on-line or download it and sent it in.
The deadline is December 2, 2016.
All 9-12 graders are eligible to participate who live in the 28th District are eligible to enter.
Thanks for your help and if you have any questions check the Senator’s website --- www.Senate.ca.gov/Stone
