Saratoga School District: Stop minimum days increase from one per month to EVERY Wednesday

 513721531489864.jpg?r=0.8590311650186777 Causes financial hardship for parents. Creates every Wednesday afternoon of empty hours for our kids. No accountability to families for teacher time during these hours. How does this improve the quality of our schools?

School board voted on EVERY Wednesday early dismissal without communication to parent community for such an impactful and financial hardship.

 Parents - Let your voice be heard.
 Attend September 10 school board meeting, 7 pm District Office, 20450 Forrest Hills Drive. Meeting may be moved to Redwood School Library to accomodate parent attendees. Check this petition for details. This issue came up 6 years ago and was voted down by the school board. A compromise of 14 early dismissal days was reached and has been in effect the last 6 years. This year the school board voted to increase early dismissal days from 14 to 34 without communicating with parent community.

Then if there is no other way because the school does not have the budget, then open it up to parents to determine the day of the week for these short days.
