We are proud to celebrate National Latino Heritage Month this September 15th through October 15th. We recognize the contributions of our Latino community to this nation. As the daughter of the Eastside, I am grateful to the Chicano Movement of 1968 and leaders like Ruben Salazar, who fought for more educational opportunities for people like you and me. That call for educational justice is alive today.
We had a great year of school improvement projects in Board District 2. I am excited to share that last year alone we invested over $116 million dollars in our schools. Here are some of the projects our schools benefitted from in the 2013-2014 school year.
