Keep CRLS' LC Clerks/Secretaries at CRLS!

197 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Dear CRLS students,

Two weeks ago, the superintendent presented a plan for a possible CPS budget for the 2014-15 school year. Included in this proposal were significant cuts to the CRLS staff, namely, all of the Learning Community secretaries (including our beloved Berhan Duncan).

I firmly believe that the city and the CRLS administration would be making a horrible mistake by cutting our LC secretaries, who keep 400+ students and staff organized, deal with daily attendance records, act as the school's communicators with families, create a supportive, welcoming atmosphere in our LC offices, among other crucial tasks. According to the budget proposal, our secretaries will be replaced by computers next year.

The School Committee will vote next Tuesday on whether they will stay. Please sign this petition if you agree that the LC secretaries are a vital part of the CRLS community and should keep their positions next year for the good of our entire school.

    Disgraceful.

    I rely on the LC Secretary to have two way communication with my daughter's school. The secretary has been my main point of contact and an advocate for my daughter when issues arise. The secretaries foster a sense of community that cannot be provided by a computer.

    It's true that many times we need to interact with Learning Community and having a person to talk with is absolutely critical.

    Please keep CRLS house assistants - they play a vital roll in comunicating between school and families.
