George Washington Carver Middle School Parents and Community Against Charter Co-Location

This petition had 165 supporters


George Washington Carver Middle School needs your support to stop California Collegiate Charter School from co-locating on our campus for the 2017-2018 school year. At a meeting attended by the district and supervisors the district reps stated the the parent voice did not matter in the co-location process.  Now they want to put an elementary charter school at  our site.   As concerned parents, community, teachers and staff of George Washington Carver Middle School we are opposed to any charter co-location.  We realize that current California law (Proposition 39) allows for classrooms and some spaces without a dedicated teacher and student roster to be allocated to charter schools seeking space in district facilities.  Unfortunately, this includes, our library, computer labs, restorative justice rooms, art rooms, music rooms, our parent center, our City Year room which is used for tutoring and any room we use to support our student learning which are key components in providing a quality education to the students of our community.  This proposed co-location threatens to deprive George Washington Carver Middle School students of these critically important resources.

George Washington Carver Middle School has the following programs which will be severely impacted by this co-location:

*School wide Restorative Justice Program.

*Every teacher teaches an advisory class where social and emotional learning takes place on a daily basis.

*We have a Boys to Gentlemen mentoring program.

*City Year who tutors our students on a daily basis and offers individualized help.

*We would lose our DoJo which houses our JiuJitsu program attended by over 100 students.

*We would lose our computer labs, which serves as the single point of access for many of  our students to access the internet.

*Our custodial, cafeteria and campus aides would be severely impacted by more students on our campus.

*We would lose our Parent Center which is a place for our  parents to gather to take classes, meet with our Principal and have access to information to help their students.

George Washington Carver has parents, teachers, staff and administrators who are dedicated to providing the best education possible to their students.  A co-location by California Collegiate Charter School would negatively impact the education of our students.  Please do not let this co-location destroy our community resources.  Our students deserve better! We are counting on you!!
