The School Board needs to hear from Challenge Supporters Now!
Apr 18, 2016 — Back at the end of last year, the District stated they would conduct a survey of stakeholders (parents, students, community members, etc.) to collect public opinion on Subcommittee issues like the Challenge Program to help the Middle School Task Force and its subcommittees with decision making. That survey was conducted, without mention of the Challenge issue in its questions, and those results are in the hands of the District. Discussion of these results was on the Agenda for the March 28 MSGRTF meeting, however, that discussion was postponed until the May meeting.
This means that the Task Force will have had NO PUBLIC INPUT discussions on the Challenge issue before they will make their recommendation to the School Board on whether to keep our current Self-Select Challenge Program on April 26, at the 7pm School Board Regular Meeting.
If the Task Force and Academic Subcommittee will not have the benefit of hearing the opinions of parents, students and community members, then the School Board will have to hear our opinions from us during the public comments section of the Board meeting. Please plan to be at the 7 pm board meeting on April 26th to express your support for challenge. Bring your kids and encourage them to speak! If you or your kids are uncomfortable with public speaking, email your comments to the board at the email addresses below. We can Save Our Challenge Program!
