Open letter to Superintendent Bill Olsen and School Committee Chair Gloria Miller

The proposed changes to the school start times have caused incredible frustration and anxiety for many parents. We have watched the School Committee Meetings on January 11th and March 1st and read the revised proposal.

Knowing that a vote is imminent, we respectfully request you: 

Answer the questions that have been submitted. Valery Young submitted an extensive list of questions a month ago on behalf of parents. A public records request reveals that dozens of parents have submitted hundreds of questions since January 11th. Dozens of questions were asked via Airtable on March 1st. Many of these questions were not answered in the proposal released on February 25th. 
Host a public meeting on this topic with adequate time for public comments and subsequent discussion by the members of the School Committee. Parents joined the March 1st call with the expectation that they would be able to participate on this topic. None of the Airtable questions were read and members of the public were not permitted to speak. 

This public conversation is an essential part of the budget process as our community wrestles with the tradeoffs being proposed in this budget cycle. 


Respectfully,

Elizabeth Almeida
