What: Save Our School (SOS) PROTEST
Where: Outside the school
When: At the time you pick-up your child, TODAY Friday, Feb. 27 at 2 pm.
Please put aside some of your time to speak up for your child and your school by participating in the Protest. On the school premises, at pick-up time, it is super convenient, too.
Also, take a minute in the morning to call Darcie Green, Board President, County Office of Education at (408) 453-6540 or email her (firstname.lastname@example.org) to politely request her to add our Facilities Request to the Board Agenda for the March 4th meeting. Deadline to add an item to the agenda for the March 4th meeting is TODAY Friday Feb. 27 by 5 pm. If the date can not get changed from the Mar 18 to the March 4th meeting, we are in the position of losing the Request for Facilities i.e the School premises. Together, let’s make the Date change happen!
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”, said Nelson Mandela and here we have the opportunity to change our children’s lives and futures. So, let’s step up to the plate and make that change!
Thank you in anticipation,
Info from Mr. Ak:
The county board has scheduled the decision for the STEM Academy charter petition for March 18th. As you are aware, along with the charter petition, we have applied for Prop 39 facilities, and unless we have a our charter approved by March 15, we will not qualify for facilities. Thus, a decision on the petition rendered after March 15th will make it impossible to open the STEM Academy for the 2015-16 school year.
I have asked the county board and staff to reschedule the decision for their March 4th meeting but have not received any positive response yet.
The agenda has to be posted by 5 pm Friday, so you may want to contact the board president and ask her to reconsider the agenda for next weeks meeting.
