WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, HEREBY PETITION THE MEMBERS OF THE BALL CHATHAM SCHOOL BOARD TO:
· REINSTATE THE ADVANCED MATH (AMP) AND ADVANCED LANGUAGE ARTS (ALP) PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS IN THE 4TH AND 5TH GRADE, AND;
· REVIEW AND IMPROVE THE PRACTICES CURRENTLY IN PLACE TO IDENTIFY AND AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED STUDENTS IN GRADES K-6
Since resource constraints were not a consideration in terminating the successful AMP and ALP programs, we believe that the expansion of the school district, along with its continued commitment to encouraging all students to achieve excellence, provides a perfect opportunity to allow for a much needed expansion, rather than dissolution, of these programs.
Additional information supporting our position, including research, data, and personal testimonials, can be found at our website:
We thank the Ball-Chatham School Board and District Administrators for agreeing to reopen and examine this issue more thoroughly.
The signers of this petition hereby appeal to the members of the board to reverse the decision to cancel the AMP/ALP program and request that AMP/ALP be reinstated for both 4th and 5th grade students.
