Save the Methacton T1 Program

We need your help to save the Methacton T1 Program! Due to district budget constraints, the Transitional First program is being considered for reduction or elimination starting Fall 2010. The Transitional First Grade (T1) program is a class for children who are developmentally young and who will benefit from an extra year before they are ready for the demands of a regular First Grade program.

            It is too late in the year for the district to make this decision!!! This decision would not be in the best interest of the students.  We are urging the board that if this decision is to be made it must be done in a 2 year phase out plan. Parents need to be given time to make appropriate educational decisions for their children.

            Reducing/eliminating the T1 program would have a negative impact on the education of our students.  Do we force them into 1st grade knowing they are not ready?  If the students who need T1 are not given the opportunity, is the district prepared to provide additional assistance in future years?  What will happen to our PSSA scores?  Do we bus our youngest students all over the district?  Does this create overcrowding of our 1st grade classes? 

We urge all Methacton parents to support our T1 program and be advocates for our youngest students.  The signatures collected through this petition will be presented to the School Board.
