Capps Visits Parent Resource Center

Rep. Lois Capps paid a visit to the underground floor of the Santa Barbara school district offices, which is quickly transforming from a repository for old materials to a functional space. She was visiting the Parent Resource Center (PRC), an educational multimedia library for parents of students with learning disabilities. Capps told Cheri Rae McKinney — the PRC’s founder — that she would like to see her apply for some grant money to increase outreach. Along with the PRC, five “teachers on special assignment” (or teacher teachers) are headquartered in the basement, and Superintendent David Cash envisions a technology learning center for parents.
