Our Mission

The mission of Walter Brown Elementary School, an innovative learning environment, is to ensure all students achieve a solid academic foundation and become self-motivated learners with good moral character by providing exceptional instruction, engaging activities, and meaningful opportunities within a safe, inclusive environment in partnership with our families and community. 

Public Education

Section 5 of Article IX of the State of California Constitution guarantees students a "free public education." The State Supreme Court concluded in the 1984 case of Hartzell v. Connell (35 Cal.3d.899 (1984)), "that all educational activities carried on by public school districts, extra-curricular as well as curricular, must be without cost to the students who participate in such activities."  This same ruling found that "mandatory fees for participating in such extra-curricular activities such as drama, music and athletic competition were illegal under the State Constitution." Furthermore, they also rejected the argument that "fees could be charged so long as the district waived fees for students who were financially unable to pay."
