West Contra Costa Community Journal and Resources

At GO West Contra Costa, we strive to be a trusted source of current, authentic, and relevant news in West Contra Costa’s public education space.

What is The West Contra Costa Community Journal?

This year we launched the "West Contra Costa community Journal' that seeks to elevate community voices and tell the story of our new advocacy model. Through varied bylines, resource sharing, and leadership profiles we are working to not only share what we do but how and why we do it. Subsequent newsletters continued to lift up key topics aligned to our community-led committees, the WCCUSD school board, WCCUSD budget and finances, COVID, student data and more.
