Dear SPUSD Family,
While the District recognizes and respects the right of free speech and right to assembly, I would like to clarify some implied misinformation circulating on social media against the new state health order mandated by Governor Newsom.
The District has become aware of efforts to keep students’ home and join in a peaceful protest on Friday, October 15th, however, the Santa Paula Unified School District, Ventura County Office of Education, nor the California Department of Education have the power to create or overturn health order mandates when enacted by the State Health Department or the Governor’s Office. Only the state legislature or the courts of law can reverse the Governor’s mandate.
Keeping your children out of school reduces the funding to your local district and its ability to offer educational programming and support your students. The money remains at the state level and benefits those who created the mandate.
If you wish to express your frustration with the recent mandate we encourage you to contact your state political representatives for Ventura County. Your representatives have the power to create a law that can reverse the mandate.
Thank you for your continued support of Santa Paula Unified School District!
Jeffrey Weinstein, District Superintendent
