Tell WCCUSD to Restore Title 1 Funding to Fairmont Elementary

The West Contra Costa School District plans to cut an additional $14,000 from Fairmont Elementary's site budget, reducing our budget from $126,000 in 2023-2024 to $42,000 in 2024-2025. That's a 66% budget cut on top of proposed staff layoffs.  

While we appreciate the need for fiscal responsibility, the WCCUSD should not balance its budget by taking essential Title 1-funded resources from the Fairmont students who need them the most. Our student body’s needs have not changed this year: we have the same percentage of students who qualify for free and reduced-price meals as last year and over 30% of our students are English learners. As the second largest elementary school in WCCUSD, we have even more students with low incomes than 14 other schools in the District that will retain their Title 1 status.
