Do not close Saint Kevin's

    1. Petition by

      Casey Falls

      Aldan, PA

Saint Kevin’s school has been unfairly targeted for closure at the end of this school year. Our school currently has enough students registered for next year to support itself entirely. We are financially stable and should remain open and given the opportunity to prove that our school will thrive. Please stand behind our school by signing this petition.

      I have relatives in the school who wish to see it remain open.

      From having worked for the Archdiocese as a School Social worker, I understand the struggle they have had to maintain a high quality schools. The error is not in the volume of parish schools or highschool regions, but the quality of education provided. The standard to be a teacher within the Archdiocese is too low. Don't close the school but instead work on development of your teachers, requiring certification in the subject areas they will teach. Your parish families struggle with rationalizing paying tuition for schooling in the economy of today when they are not promised better results for their children. Go back to the basics. And remember the dedication and committment you made to educate! (not to make money)

      Lastly, the Archdiocesan leader (exceeding those named in the petition need to improve upon their communication and service to the community. It is clear that compassion is lacking.

      My niece & nephews are attending St. Kevin's & the education they have received at St. Kevin's is comparable to any private school in the area. Please DO NOT CLOSE St. Kevin's & take this wonderful educational opportunity away from other children.
