Five More Years of HOPE
This past Thursday, December 8th, the Sacramento City Unified School District board of trustees voted 6-1 to renew the charters for PS7 and Sac High for five more years, through June 30th, 2022. This is a big win for St. HOPE and for the students and families we serve as it permits our schools to continue to deliver a high-quality, public, free college prep option for students and families. The St. HOPE team would like to give a big thank you to all the students, families and staff who attended the hearing (on Nov. 17th) and/or the vote this past Thursday. In addition, we would like to extend a special thank you to PS7 parent Jazzie Murphy, PS7 teacher Marina Hernandez, CCSA staffer Laura Kerr and Sac High scholars Yuliett Gonzalez and Rayonna Thompson for offering up public comments in support of St. HOPE and their respective schools. We know the board made the right choice in supporting our schools and the team is looking forward to continuing to serve our scholars and families going forward.
