Why this petition matters

Started by Ashlee Merback

Please sign this petition to remove Lisa Medina from her position as Harney Middle School's principal! This petition will then be passed onto Superintendent Reece Oswalt in an effort to compel him to take action! We as parents and members of this community deserve to be heard!

Lisa Medina was assigned to be the Principal of Harney by CCSD Superintendent Jesus Jara, without allowing the school's SOT to have any input in the decision. Jara used a loophole to go against CCSD's standard procedure for new principal hires. In just two years with Medina as principal, Harney has become one of the top 10 most violent schools in all of CCSD. At the end of this school year, Harney will lose over 20 teachers! The teachers leaving are some of the most engaged and successful teachers in the school. In a single year under Medina, Harney lost three assistant principals who had been there for years. These experienced administrators and teachers are not retiring, they are simply moving to other schools.  There have been multiple first hand accounts of Medina's complete inability to control classrooms, discipline students, respond to teacher concerns or even connect with students in any meaningful way.

Under Harney's prior Principal, the school excelled and was often considered the top middle school on the east side of town.  In just two years, Medina has destroyed that hard earned reputation. Harney is too important to the children and families in our community to allow Medina to ruin it. We must act now.  Please remove Lisa Medina as Principal of Harney Middle School before it's too late!
