Denise Solberg started this petition to School Board

Our school district has become top heavy and it's time for a change. The voices of school staff are often silenced, looked down on, or reprimanded when opposing thoughts are given. The open door that administration claims to have, seems only open to those with like minds.

Staff concerns shouldn't be shrugged at or laughed at. Staff shouldn't have to be afraid of being sworn at in a mtg, be told they can work and enroll their kids somewhere else if they don't like what's going on, or suffer retaliation when they exercise their right to speak out at a school board meeting.

At least half of our school staff is a parent or grandparent of children in the district. Their voices are just as important as anyone else's in the community. But unfortunately, administration does not see their value the same way.

This petition is for a change in school policy, to hold our administration accountable to the school board for how they treat and interact with school staff.

1. We are requesting that all staff be able to anonymously submit annual evaluations for each member of the administrative team at the end of each school year - which the school board would then review and address as needed.

2. We are requesting that any staff member be able to address the school board regarding issues the board may be voting on, without fear of retaliation. A provision should be included to allow for a staff member to address the board privately, vs the public meetings, if necessary.

3. We are requesting that all contracts, which are not renewed, be given sufficient explanation for the non renewal, and that the school policy is amended to include a grievance procedure for non renewals.
