Hundreds of students from around the state marched for money, to make sure funds designated for underprivileged and underserved students get to the appropriate classrooms.

The State Board of Education is deciding on the rules on how local programs can operate with that money.

“This means that we will be including the local voice in how we run our local schools and engage our parents,” Ramona Bishop, Superintendent of Vallejo City School District said.

She told FOX40 parents and students in her district are asking for after-school programs and more electives during school.
