State of Emergency Called for Public Schools
What You Can Do NOW
by Adonai Mack, ACSA Legislative Advocate
As we prepare for the governor's release of his May Budget Revision, school leaders must prepare themselves for a variety of outcomes. School leaders must express outrage and concern over any possible budget reductions for public education. It is a time for action and advocacy. To this end, ACSA is joining forces with other education, labor and community groups to declare a Public School State of Emergency to bring attention to the need for lawmakers to pass the revenue extensions proposed by Governor Jerry Brown.

Common in Japan, where it was created by Toyota subsidiary Denso-Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. QR is the abbreviation for Quick Response, as the creator intended the code to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.
The technology has seen a large uptake in Japan and South Korea. However, in the west there has been a considerably slower adoption of QR Codes. You can check out this link to find out more about QR CODES.
HOW DO YOU VIEW A QR CODE?
Using your smartphone, download the QR APP, it is free for most, then take a picture of OUR QR Code and it will decode it for you. In all reality this will only take about 2 minutes the first time and less each time after that!!
