Increase education funding by at least 4 percent so schools can:
Commit to reopen all public schools for in-person learning in School Year 2021-22 with family, educator, and community confidence.
Establish school buildings as safe, public vaccination sites.
Build strong re-engagement initiatives so adult students come back to school and improve their long-term employability and economic stability for themselves and their families.
Establish a 5th academic quarter for high school students through the Summer Youth Employment Program. So students must catch up on the critical experiences of high school, create individual college and career plans, get support in completing critical milestones on their path to graduation.
