An updated, pragmatic consolidation plan for Warwick schools addressing community concerns
This petition had 416 supporters
Warwick Public schools are in trouble. The initial phases of the consolidation process have demonstrated that the decisions were hastily made, and several additional concerns from these first phases needs to be addressed. Additionally, new information has been obtained that needs to be analyzed for impact against original plans. Currently walk throughs are being conducted in all schools to determine building issues, and not surprisingly, there are more issues than expected. Also, our teachers have been working without a contract for 3 years. Regardless of your personal feeling, it is only logical to expect there should be a stable agreement to factor into the schools' financial position. There is a "butterfly effect" on our communities that is being ignored. Changing traffic patterns without regard to community impact, local businesses or personal safety. Impacts on property values, tax base and future city growth and development. Our city deserves, and our citizens are demanding a plan that makes sense, with open communication, community involvement, and transparency. Please sign our petition to halt the Warwick School Committee's current plan for consolidation to proceed without further community impact investigation, and help gets our schools get back to a place we are all proud of!
