Congratulations, Santa Clara! You saved a school district and created a brighter future for kids. Your votes for Ratermann, Muirhead, and Sallings in the Santa Clara Unified Board election ensure a solid board majority dedicated to accountability, collaboration, and most importantly, a focus on students. I hope the community will give this new board majority the gift of time to carefully assess and determine the path forward. The depth of destruction that occurred over several years requires time to restore trust, rebuild programs, and return to the excellence once found in Santa Clara Unified. It’s a bright new day, Santa Clara, and our kids won!
