STOCKTON SCHOOLS INITIATIVE
Stockton Schools Initiative (SSI) is a coalition of students, families, and community stakeholders that believe in the power of collaborative decision-making to move the needle on education equity in Stockton schools.
Stockton Schools Initiative works to activate, organize and amplify the voices of students and families across Stockton. We drive equitable family-school-partnerships with an ongoing focus on student centered data-driven education policy at the local state, national level.
WHAT WE DO
“I am a parent and a parent ambassador with Stockton Schools Initiative. This program has helped me learn the right me and my children have. I learned about school roles. SSI has helped me advocate for my children’s school. I can help other parents and guide them [in] the right direction. My favorite part of this program has been learning how to read data and know how all schools are doing and how I can help improve. I learned how important my voice is.”
I am a parent ambassador with Stockton Schools Initiative. I believe a parent’s participation in their children’s education is very important because if we work together, we are able to build a better education all the way from home. Stockton Schools Initiative has helped me take the correct steps to advocate for my son’s special education class.
I am an advocate for my granddaughter. Education is very important to me and I’m thankful for this program because I have learned about data and LCFF. The LCAP was important to me also because I have learned how the budget is being used.
I have learned how to advocate for my children’s school. We learned what steps to take when I have a question or concern.
