DENY a charter for New Heights Charter School
We, the undersigned, as families andresidents of the City of Brockton would like to express our desire thatthe Department of Elementary and Secondary Educatioin (DESE)NOT grant a charter to the New Heights Charter School.
The people of Brockton are extremely proud of the great strides our public schools have made in recent years. We are also proud of the fact that children and families in Brockton already have a plethora of choices available to them that suits nearly every need a child may have. As an urban school district Brockton Schools have had virtually unprecedented success and satisfaction with our system. Also as an urban district we cater to a large amount of special ed students and english language learners. Students who require more resources and generally do not help increase the district’s test scores. Despite this, our system achieves many great things that we would be in danger of losing if a large portion of the budget were to be diverted to an un-needed charter school.
We ask that you please consider the record of choices and achievement in Brockton, as well as the wishes and desired of the families and residents here and DENY a charter to New Heights Charter School.
