Parents WILL be heard!
We want to remind you about the crucial School Board Workshop this Wednesday, October 16th at 4PM at the MLK Administration Center (5775 Osceola Trail). Your support and input is needed! The School Board will consider the changes to after school policies proposed by the district, which include the rules already in place regarding mandatory price increases, no rollover credits, and restricted physical activity. We will also address the lack of parental involvement and accountability in the decision making process and how to ensure we make these decisions in the future!
This is the FIRST and so far ONLY time that parents and members of the community can ask questions about the district's policy and process for arriving at this point. We need you there to stand for parents rights as well as ethics and transparency in our school district!
**FREE CHILD CARE!
Sports Club has offered to keep the Sports Club Center open until after the School Board Workshop (as long as it takes) AND serve pizza to the kids! The Sports Club Center is located at 3275 Pine Ridge Rd, very near to the MLK Administration Center (behind Community School & Barron Collier HS).
Children who already attend SCC in the afternoons will be charged a normal day. Parents from any school who are attending the workshop can bring their children to SCC on their way at no charge! Pizza will be served at 5:45PM.
School Board Meeting - Cell Tower Discussion - Tuesday 10/15, Immokalee H.S.
The School Board had another discussion regarding the cell towers at Poinciana Elementary and other schools at the regular school board meeting on Tuesday 10/15 at 4PM at Immokalee High School (every October meeting is in Immokalee to allow those citizens easier access to the board).
Several members of Parents ROCK went to the meeting. This is another example of lack of parent involvement and input, and the district disregarding parent and community concerns for a financial incentive. If you have not already, please sign the Poinciana petition here.
