The purpose of this petition is to take a pro-active approach to the real threat that MBCA could follow the Cobb County School Board's decision to begin the school year two weeks earlier than in the past to Monday, August 2, 2010. In contrast, Fulton County Schools are scheduled to begin their school year three weeks later on Monday, August 23rd. If you DO NOT want to see Mt. Bethel Christian Academy move the first day of school date two weeks earlier and follow the Cobb County schedule that would have a week of school off in September, please sign this petition for presentation to the Mt. Bethel Christian Academy. Please circulate this petition to other MBCA families. Thank you and God Bless.
