Create a safe and secure school for Palmer Elementary School students

This petition had 427 supporters

Parents, students, and community members are deeply concerned about the physical state of Palmer Elementary School on Chicago’s northwest side. Several facilities-based issues have festered for too long and are no longer acceptable or safe for our students and teachers. 

Despite our failing facilities, our students, teachers, staff and parents have worked hard and are making great achievements, which have resulted in a Level 1+ rating, numerous awards and recognition. These conditions have lingered for too long without attention or action from our elected officials and those charged with protecting and nurturing our children.

High quality schools are good for everyone. They help increased property values, a ensure a well-educated community, help stabilize the tax base, increase demand for housing, and help grow economic development and increase traffic in business districts.

Our kids and our community deserve better.
