The School Success Express Tour's coming to Salinas

California schools are undergoing tremendous changes.

Not only are they in the midst of implementing new learning goals, they will also have more money to do it in the upcoming years.

The money will be particularly important to schools that serve students whose first language is Spanish -- also called English learners -- and students in low income families.

In an effort to get input from the public, the California Endowment is bringing a bus across the state called the School Success Express Tour,a tour of 12 cities where parents and students are invited to help shape implementation of the Fair School Funding law.

The forum will take place at Los Padres Elementary School, 1130 John Street in Salinas. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the forum will begin at 6:00 p.m.

Fair School Funding is expected to increase money per student in most low-income schools. At Alisal Union, for example, there will be an almost 87 percent increase in funding over the next seven years. Other low-income districts are projected to receive a similar increase.
