Near my high school are train tracks that have had fatalities on, including a student that attended my school. Would building a train safety sign help prevent future lives being lost?

Competitive Teacher Wages

1 reply

The problem is that the San Lorenzo Unified School District (SLZUSD) has one of the lowest teachers'  wages and is one of the least competitive districts out of all the school districts in Alameda County. Our school, Arroyo High School, had eight unfilled positions in the beginning of the year because teachers didn't want to come, proving that we're not competitive with other schools and districts. Our goal is to raise teachers' wages to make our district competitive and to also spread awareness of this injustice. If we raise teachers' wages to a competitive salary, more teachers will want to come work at our district and current teachers won't want to leave as well. Our district will also be able to hire better qualified teachers with higher wages. This is beneficial not only to teachers, but also to students because if more teachers are hired due to higher wages, class sizes will be reduced and students will be able to get more one-to-one interactions with their teacher. Teachers will also feel more satisfied and enthusiastic to work, leading to a more positive learning environment. Help spread awareness of this injustice! Contact the school board and voice your opinion. Feedback is appreciated :)

School Recycling

We have a recycling problem at Arroyo. The lack of recycling is attracting seagulls, makes the school appear dirty, and by not recycling Arroyo is missing out on huge profits. If our policy is enforced, it will help fix the current problems and bring in big revenues for our school that will help pay for dances, and other student events. Likewise, we're helping save the environment.

For those of you who live in the Bay, water collected from the streets don't get filtered before it reaches the bay.  Do you think that the fact that sewage water doesn't get filtered before it reaches the ocean. Does this contributes largely to ocean pollution?  And for those of you who do not live in the Bay, would you consider Ocean pollution a big problem?

School Parking Lots

1 reply
Ixchel
Last
Bookmark

Our goal is to help those who drive to school get to class on time. The traffic coming to school causes students to park in the spaces towards the back of the lot. This leads to an increase in the amount of time it takes them to walk to class and reduces the time they have to go to their lockers. Not only will this help those who are driving, but also the students who get dropped off. Parents and student drivers struggle to get into the parking lot quickly enough because of all the traffic. By opening up the parking lot in the back of our school, students will have more convenient parking spaces. Those who have classes in the back of the school will be able to get to class faster. Parents will have to deal with less student drivers when dropping of their kids in the front of the school. Overall, this will help the flow of traffic and also make the roads safer because drivers won't have to rush as much.

How Should Schools Utilize Their Funds Properly?

1 reply
Francisco
Last
Bookmark

On an annual basis, schools are given money to issue throughout the school. However, the problem is-- do they use it properly. Recently, at the high school I'm attending, the school has bought lanyards for our ID's, and hired workers to remove the old gum off of the school grounds. It's understandable that the lanyards are for security reasons and the gum removal is for-- to make the school nicer, However, there are problems in the school that need to be adressed: there aren't enough books, or the insides of the buildings are in need or renovation since some classes do seem like safety hazards. Yet, there isn't a student council that is able to adress this properly. What do you believe should occurr? Should there be a student council? And is this a major problem?
