Plum Borough School District - Parents say NO to school program cuts

This petition had 2,221 supporters

We the parents of Plum Students want to ensure that school students within the Plum Borough School District receive a competitive education.

The following is a petition to the Plum Borough School Board respectfully requesting that School Board members reconsider program cuts.  Programs such as STEM, Foreign Language, Special Education Learning Support, and FULL day Kindergarten are essential to our Plum Students. 

Losing a full day Kindergarten program would not only deter the educational advancement of a younger generation.  It would also put a financial strain on those who would need to offset the day with daycare.

Two full years of Foreign Language has been a requirement for many years for most four year colleges.  By cutting this program, what percentage of Plum Graduates will not gain acceptance to college.

Education with an emphasis on STEM is seen in all avenues of a child's educational development.  Also our STEM classes within Plum have gained local attention with the many awards and not to mention the POSITIVE publication that it brings to this district.

Special Education programs are vital to those students who need them.  By cutting this program the School Board will be leading the district into turmoil with the ADA and the ACLU. 

We are asking for the Plum Borough School Board to reconsider all options.  The signatures attached with this petition are standing up for the Students of Plum Borough. A child's education is worth fighting for.  Do not cut these programs.
