Replace The Current REACH School Director - Cecile Enright

This petition had 138 supporters

Cecile Enright must be removed as director of River's Edge Academy Charter School (REACH) for the school to survive.  She has been accused of violating the charter by-laws and Special Education (SPED) Law. Her treatment of parents, students and staff have contributed to huge turnovers in enrollment and staff. Since the start of the charter school in 2011, there have been 62 staff members who have been either quit or been terminated. As the teachers are welcomed into the privacy of their families’ homes every week during student meetings, a close relationship is built between the teacher and their families. Teacher turnover, therefore, has a direct impact on student turnover and student/family satisfaction. The break in continuity of the teaching staff has negatively affected high school students’ performance and progress toward meeting graduation standards. Since the start of the charter school in 2011, over 400 students  have dropped. That is nearly 4 times our enrollment cap.

By in large, REACH staff and parents believe the school is desperately needed in the Rogue River area, and if it wasn't for the current director it could become a very successful, progressive school. We serve roughly 185 students in a personalized learning blended model as to accommodate the unique needs of families in this region.  Our model provides an alternative source for education to those students that do not fit into the traditional school setting, and  bridges the gap between homeschool and public education. Many of our students come from rural areas in which there is limited choice in educational experiences. In addition, we  are the only school in our district that offers several alternative routes to graduation, such as modified diplomas, GEDs, and early college programs. REACH school has amazing potential and a phenomenal staff, however, with the current leadership it is inevitable that this charter school will fail.
