Confirmed victory

Protect the T.F. South Music Department by keeping Mr. Madonia as the T. F. South Band Director.

This petition made change with 1,242 supporters!


Mr. Madonia has been the Band Director at T. F. South for the last 25 years. Throughout those years, the music program has seen drastic improvement—whether it be regarding the number of students in the program to the countless statewide and nationwide awards and championships that the program has taken home. On a more personal level, Mr. Madonia has taught and inspired thousands of students over the years, providing them with encouragement, guidance, and mentorship as they transition from children to young adults. Mr. Madonia has given his life to this program and the students, and now his role as Band Director is in jeopardy.

 This week, the Thornton Fractional School District 215 Board of Education will decide whether Mr. Madonia should continue his work as the T. F. South Band Director or if he should be reassigned to work at the Center  for Academics and Technology (or ‘Tech Center')—as is within their purview given their right of assignment. Given the 25 years as Band Director and significant personal contribution to the program, this reassignment seems simply unfair to Mr. Madonia, his students, and the program. Please stand with all of the past, present, and future students who have been (or will be) positively influenced by Mr. Madonia and the T. F. South Music Department by signing this petition to state that you support Mr. Madonia and do not think that his life or the lives and experiences of his students should be compromised due to this right of assignment.
