Starting 2012-2013 School Year, the Liberty county school board has changed their policy for parents walking their children to class. We aren't allowed! They also now require us to give the school 24 hour notice prior to observing our child's class. Once it is approved by the principal, someone will escort you to the class and sit in there with you. Then, after 20 minutes you are required to leave and may not observe the class again until the next semester. If you feel that you should not be "locked out" of the school your child attends, or feel that this gives the school and teachers too much power, please sign below. We need to send a message letting them know how the parents feel. I will be presenting this petition to the Liberty County School Board on August 14th so PLEASE sign as soon as possible.

      Like any other parents that cares for their child's education, I want my rights on parental involvement preserved. The context of the policy do not addressed a sound safety plan, it is clearly develop to ban the parents from the classroom, and make sure that they do not have the opportunity to see the every day routine. I urge any parent to support this petition.

      A 24 hr notice does not do anything except allow the teacher to "plan" our arrival, What if there is a problem with the teacher and you as a parent need to do a surprise visit to make sure things are on the up and up. Yet one more FREEDOM this school district has taken away. whats next... force feed them too...?

      This is important to any parent. What does the schools have to hide? What will it hurt for a parent to walk his or her child to class? If teachers want parent involvement why is the BoE trying to cut parents out? The questions are not being answered by the Superintendent or any of the BoE. Why put policies in effect if they do not want to comment?
