LODL Parents started this petition to Superintendent of Prior Lake Savage Area Schools Dr. Teri Staloch

We, the parents of La ola del lago students, want to ensure our school is delivering on the mission of the district—to educate all learners to reach their full potential.
 
We believe in the promise of bilingual education and stand behind this new, innovative program in support and appreciation for this opportunity for our children. However, with growing concerns from parents about program rigor, student differentiation, and middle school planning, along with concerning data trends, and with the program approaching full capacity next year as a K-5 school, we want to confirm we are on the right track with curriculum, program implementation, and academic results.
 
To be effective and strive for continuous improvement, something we know the district values, we believe it is imperative to evaluate the program at this point with an independent, unbiased outside immersion expert. Similar to other regional immersion programs that systematically use services such as CAL (Center for Applied Linguistics) for independent and objective program audits, we would expect the same objective and impartial perspective for LODL.
 
As families that have invested in this program’s success we now request you invest in an immediate and unbiased evaluation. Please confirm the LODL experience is serving our kids while identifying opportunities to improve and stay current in following immersion education best practices. 

Please respond publicly to this petition to explain how quickly and in what ways the district will ensure appropriate action is taken.
