Riah Ross started this petition to Calcasieu Parish School Board

   Many of our well respected and admired teachers of LaGrange Senior High School's university program are being removed from their positions due to "budget cuts". I've understood that eventually this would happen, as LaGrange has always been low income. Though this was inevitable, we should have did something in advance to try and save the teachers that dedicate most of their year to these students.

If we can raise enough money to properly support our teachers, no cuts will have to be made. We could get back the ones we already lost, and keep the ones we don't want to lose. Students sometimes are bound to take some of their teachers for granted, however, once we lose them, we realize just how much they have helped shape us into potential successors.

As of today, July 2, 2020, my peers and I have lost 3+ teachers from our program.  One of which has moved to a completely different school. Three teachers. Three amazing teachers who have done wonderful things for our program, who cannot be forgotten nor replaced. Though I don't at all agree to who is being removed, I see how the school board had no choice, but to demote some people.

But, what if they didn't? What if there's a way for everyone to get what they want? The school board would have the money they need, the teachers would have their positions back, and the students won't have to say goodbye to their favorite teachers. If it is within your willingness, then please help. Thank you.
