Angelina Martinez started this petition to pico rivera school board and

Hello to the Pico Rivera and surrounding community members. I attend Ellen Ochoa Prep Academy in Pico Rivera and my school is being threatened to close. We were told recently that if we did not reach a certain amount of freshman students by a certain date, they would automatically transfer all students enrolled at Ellen Ochoa to El Rancho. Now this isn't the first time they have done something like this to us. As a student, I have seen many teachers leave because of the unnecessary stress the district puts on my school. Dr. Esparza, Arlene Perez, Dr. Joseph Rivera, Esther Mejia, Carolyn Castillo, and Dr. Teresa L. Merino are doing nothing to help our school. All we have been asking for is the bare minimum. That bare minimum to us is basic support. Year after year they have let teachers and parents outside of our school community dictate what happens to us. We have never gotten a say in what should happen to our school. Our school is what this district needs. It creates options and is a safe place for all types of students. If I did not have the support from my teachers at Ellen Ochoa, I would not be here. This school creates options for students and their parents. Please join me to keep Ellen Ochoa open!!
