Yesterday, over 1600 of you joined our Rally to Reclaim our schools. You voted overwhelmingly to reject the district's May 25th proposal. In fact, of the over 1600 votes cast, only 11 FTA members wanted us to accept a proposal that failed to give us and our students what we deserve. And in unprecedented fashion, all 1600 plus of you voted yes to our May 31st proposal that we gave to the district last night (

Your presence helped send a clear and powerful message to district leadership that we are getting prepared to take whatever steps necessary to truly transform education in Fresno.
We are happy to report that the district has agreed to bargain with FTA on June 9th. We are hopeful we can come to an agreement prior to the final 2016-17 school board meeting on June 14th. We stand resolute and encouraged by your willingness to show up for two hours to help us forge ahead to a possible fair and balanced agreement. And we will not waver...too much is at stake, too much is achievable, all while 74,000 of our students are counting on us to deliver something much better than status quo.
