Dear Dr. Smith:
The Sunnyvale District School Board is committed to the After School Program. In fact, it will solve a problem we have recognized for years. Our children go home mostly to empty houses—they get in trouble. Our crime rates and substance abuse rates are high.
We have agreed with Dr. Doe, the Superintendent, that we will lobby City and County Council for funding during the entire time the grant is operating. If all else fails we will cut administrative staff to cover the key positions of Project Coordinator and Site Coordinators.
We thank you for the opportunity to apply.
Allyson A. Plummer, PhD Chairman, Sunnyvale School Board
