California Teachers Association President David Sanchez is visiting Newhall School district schools today to discuss the role of the union in the face of state budget cuts.

Sanchez will spend the morning with Newhall Teacher’s Association President Carole Magnuson, Representatives of the Newhall Teacher’s Association, Superintendent Marc Winger, representatives of his administrative staff and school board members before visiting several school sites.

Magnuson said this visit will give staff members at the various school sites an opportunity to showcase some of the special programs at the schools.

“Every school has its own special way of teaching the students at their site,” she said.

Each school site visit will last approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

Sanchez will visit J. Michael McGrath, Newhall, Newhall Meadows and Stevenson Ranch elementary schools.

After lunch, Sanchez will visit one more school before meeting with the Newhall Teachers Association at its monthly board meeting.

“I look forward to seeing the good things happening in  Newhall schools,” said Sanchez.

“I’ll be encouraging the people I talk with to join CTA in our fight to protect education from budget cuts that will hurt teaching and learning for the students of this state and this community.”

Magnuson and Winger are happy to show off district schools to visitors.

“People in statewide positions often get focused on the large districts and their large problems,” Winger said.

“It’s great to come to a small, successful district and I am sure that’s what CTA President Sanchez will see.”
