Erin Pierce started this petition

As of this past week, the superintendent has recommended that the school committee cut a music position at CCMS to .5(half time) AND cut the .5 elementary strings position that we all fought so hard to restore last  year.  This is DEVASTATING to our district and our programs as you can.

Because of reassignment of staff, three music teachers (almost 30% of our music staff) have been laid off for next year including our elementary strings specialist, Emily Johnston, CCMS band director Eric Drew, and SKHS Choral/Theatre Director Ryan Muir (who also happens to be a Grammy-nominated, award-winning educator and former SK Schools Teacher of the Year).

THIS SITUATION NEEDS YOUR VOICE!  Please sign this petition if you are a current or former student that has been involved with the SK music program at any time during your school career.  Please sign if you are a parent, grandparent, teacher or community member who believes that the Music Program belongs in our schools and the value that it offers young minds.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you at the School Committee meeting on Tuesday, May 24 6pm at the SK High School cafeteria.  

You can also write letters to SK Town Council members, SK School Committee members and the Superintendent (skshcools.net)  THANK YOU!
