Eight clergy, two community members, and partner organization Kidworks met with the Santa Ana Superintendent Melendez to explore concrete ways to work together to improve education for students in Santa Ana. The group discussed opportunities such as the healthy kids survey (an assessment of health needs in the district), participation on the school climate committee, and partnering for the year-long voter engagement campaign that OCCCO is leading. The group asked Superintendent Melendez to work with them to develop a common covenant, and to attend a public forum to work with the community in May. The Superintendent agreed.
