H-BR / Somonauk Soccer Petition - Investigate 2018 Season - Stop The Bullying!

We request the following from the H-BR and Somonauk school boards.  This petition is separate from the January 2017 Petition. This petition was created off of the information received that is posted under “updates”. We have been contacted about adding additional concerns and have updated some wording. Thank you for your support.  1. Protect H-BR and Somonauk players from bullying and ensure a safe and secure playing environment  2. Conduct an investigation into how H-BR administration mishandled issues this season, including bullying complaints from players / parents / coaches, threats, discrimination, poor communication, lack of scheduling of games and events 3. Reinstate girls soccer coach because she felt resigning was the only solution after trying to protect players from the bullying and trying to protect herself from verbal and physical threats throughout the season, and now threats to her teaching job 4. Consider revising contract with H-BR: A. Have Somonauk run the team and keep the co-op B. Consider terminating co-op contract and each school try to field enough players on their own or co-op with other schools C. Have the girls join the boys team at each respective school as they do in Sandwich and other area schools  This is the link to the old petition showing that H-BR administration has a history of allowing bullying and harassment. We understand some are concerned about retaliation if they sign the petition.  To sign the petition anonymously, uncheck the box after entering your name and email.  Thank you for your support.
