Hurley visits Cal State Fullerton

Thursday, more than 100 third grade students and 25 parents from
Hurley Elementary will visit Cal State
Fullerton in the “I’m Going to College!” program.

Students and parents will enjoy a special Cultural Dance
presentation in the Titan Theater performed by Cal State Fullerton

The college program began in the spring of 1990, but
ran out of funds in 1999.  Hurley is thrilled to bring back the
program this year.

Donations were made by Cal State’s Book
Store, Associated Student Group, and Mesa Cooperativa, an active
Student group on campus.

The Chicano/Chicana Studies Department donated
funds for the Science Adventure Standard Based Presentation that the
students will be involved in.

The college program’s goal is early intervention and to plant the seed
early — the idea of college to both students and parents while in
elementary grades.

Students from Cal State Fullerton will guide the campus tour of the library, Performing Arts Center,
and The Greenhouse, health
center, and the new Business Building.  

Parents will meet with the Financial Aid Department to give them information on how to
pay for college.


Rowland educators protest layoffs

The Association of Rowland Educators will hold a candlelight vigil before tonight’s meeting of the school board. They will be protesting outside the administration building of Rowland Unified School District.

The association expects the board of education to vote on a proposal to layoff 88 teachers because of the budget deficit.

All school districts need to present budgets to the county office of education by March 15. Many are planning to hand out hundreds of layoff notices. Azusa Unified plans to hand out 116 pink slips, while Covina Valley expects to lay off 88 instructors.
