On Friday, October 6, 2023, our Board of Education and Superintendent will host our ninth annual State of the Schools breakfast presented by the Downey Foundation for Educational Opportunities, with all proceeds benefiting True Lasting Connections (TLC).  This event will be held at the Los Angeles County Office of Education’s West Conference Center, 12830 Columbia Way, Downey, at 7 a.m. and will end at approximately 9 a.m.

Breakfast provided by our very talented students from the Warren High School Culinary pathway.

A delicious breakfast will be served by our Warren High School Culinary students while attendees listen to keynote speakers share the district’s achievements and strategic direction.  This event will also enlighten guests about the major programs being implemented throughout the district, while serving as an opportunity to interact with students and meet the school district’s Board of Education members and fellow Downey community members.

All proceeds will go to our TLC Family Resource Center, which partners with more than 50 agencies dedicated to providing support to children and families within the district. These services include providing the help needed by parents to become better participants in our schools and the community.  TLC also ensures that each referred student receives the physical and emotional support they need.

The eight annual State of the Schools was a sold-out event, with 300 guests in attendance and over $5,000 in proceeds benefiting TLC.  We invite our families and the community to attend this year’s informative event; tickets will be via presale only and are $35 per person.  Tables of eight and sponsorships are also available for organizations and/or individuals. This event is tax deductible.
