Amy Shoop started this petition to CASA Board of Directors

Dear Casa Parents,

One of the core priorities of Casa Board of Directors is to shape, review and continually improve Casa by supporting our mission to foster joyful, cooperative, multicultural relationships amongst children, families, school faculty and the local community.  As part of the Strategic Plan to support our mission (approved in June 2019) the Board made a commitment to ‘enhance educational excellence in the Montessori and Spanish Language Immersion program by recruiting, training and retaining top academic professionals and to bolster school leadership with increased collaboration between all community stakeholders to work towards common goals that support the school mission both materially and operationally’ (http://www.cemcs.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/2019-2024-CEMCS-Strategic-Plan.pd

A strong driver to retain and recruit the unique skill set we need at Casa (Spanish Immersion AND Montessori) is the total compensation package.  The current change from participation in the State Plan to a 457(b) plan reduces the benefit for our current staff and does not offer incentives to attract new talent. In addition to limiting our ability to meet the staffing initiatives, this decision lacked collaboration with community stakeholders most impacted by this decision (staff).  

We are petitioning the Board to address the following:

  1. Re-instate the State Plan benefit for our staff.
  2. Provide transparency on the decision made: problem being solved, expertise contracted to assist with decision making, etc.
  3. Include a team of volunteer parents and staff to participate in a new solution that can provide a win/win outcome that includes the voices of your stakeholders.

We appreciate the support to bring our concerns to the Board of Directors.
