Against the Forced Resignation of Mr/Coach Connelly

This petition had 1,072 supporters

If you aren't aware, top administrators at Eisenhower High School are forcing the resignation  of Clint Connelly, or known to most of us, Coach Connelly. The reason behind it none other than simply a "budgetary" reason. Funny thing is, our district by all counts is in great financial health. It literally says on their website they've been awarded the highest financial recognition 11 years in a row by the Illinois Board of Education.

We simply cannot let a good man, community leader, teacher, and coach be let go from his job simply for budget reasons when the numbers don't add up from an outsider's perspective. Especially when someone like him has dedicated more hours to the students of the district than most can attest. 

If the district let's go of an employee who exceeds the expectations of his duties compared to what is required of him; then what does that say about our district going forward and the confidence of its employees? What kind of message is that sending to the community and to future candidates seeking a job in this district?

There are a lot of us who have had the privilege of having Mr Connelly be our coach, teacher, etc. I'm asking you to take a few moments of your time to please sign this petition, so that it may be presented at the school board meeting this Thursday @ 6:30 PM at the Administrative Center (10701 Kirkpatrick Ave, Oak Lawn, IL, 60453). 

We hope to get many members of the community out there as well to voice their displeasure, and show support!

Thank You!
