Board Audio 35:20 Fernada Diabla Teacher San Juan Hills High School
Transportation Problems at Capo Valley and San Juan Hills. Worked to get a Public Bus route because kids in San Juan cannot get to school. Students are now depending on Ubber or Lift just to get to school at great expense. This is not financially sustainable and it makes it impossible for students to participate in extracurricular activities.
Board Audio 38:05 David Fernadiz First Generation Latino that graduated Valedictorian at San Juan Hills High School
Speaking in support of getting San Juan Hills Bus Transportation. His family only had one car and his dad needed that for work. If he had not been lucky enough to get a FREE bus pass all four years of school he would have missed a lot of school and would not have been able to graduate Valedictorian. He will be attending UCI in the fall and it is because he only missed six days of school. There are many students who cannot get to school. Carpools pay $30 per week. Lift is $10 per ride. This increases absenteeism. He had to quit football because if he did not catch the bus it was a one hour and 20 minute walk home. He reminded CUSD of their district pledge: "An Unwavering Commitment To Student Success" and encouraged them to bring back busing.
Board Audio 41:29 Martha Agular Non-english Speaking Parent to share her families experience about the hardships families experience because of a lack of bus transportation for students.
