Please sign this petition if you oppose Jefferson Parish School Board's decision to extend the school day by 30 minutes starting Oct 1, 2012 - Mar 1, 2013, to make up for days missed due to Hurricane Isaac.
This decision was made without adequate notice being given to parents thus preventing us from being able to offer any recommendations on how the days should be made up. Superintendent James Meza stated "the survey of principals, while not comprehensive, captured general sentiments from the schools, including teachers and parents". If you were not polled and do not agree with this outcome, please join this petition requesting this decision be reversed and that the School Board propose alternative options using built in makeup days and holidays to recover lost time, that parents be notified of the options, and that parents be allowed to vote on a solution that a true majority approves and is in the best interest of the students.
Please share and sign this petition if you agree.
