Entertainment Movies are NOT for School

Willard School District is a wonderful place to have children enrolled in school. The teachers and administrators care about our children and do a great job. We have a concern with the amount of entertainment movies shown at school for indoor recess and rewards. These movies are shown without parent permission granted or parent notification. The school district spends over $1700.00 a year paid to Movie Licensing USA so our children can be entertained by copyrighted movies at school and in after school programs. We feel this is a waste of our children\'s educational time and taxpayer\'s money. Indoor recess should be a time when kids are still active and playing. School curriculum time should be used for education. Entertainment movies are for home viewing under parent discretion. Dr. Kent Medlin, Superintendent of the Willard R-II School District has refused to take entertainment movies out of our schools. He has also refused to require parent notification if children will be shown an entertainment movie. We want our children to have the best education available to them. Our petition to Dr. Kent Medlin, Superintendent, Principals Amy Sims, Julie Germann, Shane Medlin, Kara Crighton-Smith, Melinda Miller, Rhonda Bishop and the Willard City Board of Education (Board members Caroline Puckett, Karla Shaffer, Mark Anderson, Jan Copeland, Ron Crighton, Michael Graves and Steve Vaughn) is to eliminate all entertainment movies from our school system, thus giving back recess to the children and over $1700.00 a year to education. Please sign our petition here and call 742-0333 to help circulate this petition or get more information.
