Also, I believe the author meant to say Superintendent Dr. Beth Polito from the Las Lomitas Elementary School District, not the Woodside Elementary School District. Looking forward to speaking with those who can attend.

Why isn’t Ravenwood or Redwood City school district in this meeting? Yet again the disenfranchised are not invited to the party.

@concerned, the panel participants are public schools serving Menlo Park City Council District 5, the City Council District I reside in. Ravenswood School District is in District 1, which the Mayor, Cecilia Taylor serves. She was on a panel with the Superintendent of the Ravenswood District in the impacts of Covid-19 on April 30th.
