Save Our Schools! The Montclair Board of Education is currently deciding cuts to the school budget, including these that go to the basic building blocks of Montclair Education and its reputation for educational excellence:
1)closing 2 magnets, dropping the number of schools from 11 to 9,
2)cutting out full-time kindergarten and offering only a half-day program at just two locations, and
3) increasing classroom size over the current goal of no more than 25 students.
Tell the Board that these are the wrong cuts!!!! Sign and tell the Board we want to:
1)Preserve our unique, famous and highly acclaimed Magnet school system! Don't close or sell/rent off our schools!
2)Keep our Full Day Kindergarten!
3)Keep our class sizes manageable!
Cuts to these building blocks will effect schools and children districtwide as schools and staff are reshuffled, hurt our town's reputation for educational excellence, and impact property values! Sign and tell the Board to save the building blocks,
