• Attend the next Board of Education meeting on January 9, 2018:

Starts at 6:30 pm. It is very important that as many parents as possible attend. Also, it will be very powerful if 2-3 parents speak to the Board of Education during that meeting (people willing to speak must arrive at 6 pm and fill out a card). Even if you don’t plan to speak, arriving early at 6 pm also helps ensure you have a seat in the boardroom and that we have as many people visible as possible. It’s important that parents are united to send a strong message to the district leadership.

  • Some key questions you can ask at the board meeting are:
  1. What is the plan to continue the bilingual education program after third grade?
  2. How will middle school and high school students continue to receive support in order to obtain the seal of biliteracy?
  3. What is the reason for mandating PARCC administration in English, even for students currently in the bilingual education program?
