#MakeYourMark during the CA Primaries Elections next Tuesday 6/7 | Don't Vote? Don't Complain!
The Presidential Primary Election is on Tuesday, June 7, 2016. Please remember to take some time to make your mark and vote!
Take the opportunity & participate on the 2016-2017 PTA Board | Elections at forthcoming 3/16 Meeting
All are invited to consider taking on a role on the PTA Board for the coming 2016-2017 school year. This is an opportunity to become an integral member of our organization of parents, teachers and community members as we strive to enhance our children’s experience here at Eagle Rock Elementary.
Many working parents feel that they cannot be involved in the business and activities of the PTA because they cannot come to every meeting or be on campus during the day; however, the possibilities in ways you can participate are nearly limitless.
The privilege of nominating from the floor is extended to members of the association who are present, whose dues are paid, and who have been members of the association for at least 30 days. A qualified member may nominate his or her self and nominations do not require a second, only the nominee’s consent.
You can make a difference in our school community so consider a leadership role in your Eagle Rock Elementary PTA!

WHAT CALIFORNIA STATE PTA IS DOING
It’s hard to fathom that a judge would allow such an overexposure of children’s information. While California State PTA is not part of the court ruling, we are exploring other avenues to delay, reduce or possibly reverse the release of so much of our children’s personal information. California State PTA has a long history of protecting and upholding students’ privacy rights, and today is no different. Read our media statement, and we'll keep you updated as we learn more.
In April 2012, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association filed a lawsuit against the California Department of Education_ (CDE) alleging non-compliance by local education agencies with special education laws. The suit also alleges the CDE fails to monitor, investigate and correct such non-compliance in accordance with the law.
While this lawsuit called for students’ general demographic information, a federal court has just ruled that CDE must release all data -- even including names and Social Security numbers -- it has collected on general and special education students since Jan. 1, 2008 – more than 10 million students. Find out more from the CDE. Read the California Department of Education's media statement.
