We believe that the rich tradition and history of Weequahic High School for the past 80 years must be preserved and passed forward to serve as a catalyst and springboard to inspire a new generation of Weequahic students.
We request that the Weequahic High School remains open as a public comprehensive high school in the city of Newark and that plans to phase out the traditional high school program over the next three years are discarded.
We further request that the plan to eliminate the 9th grade at Weequahic High School be abandoned and that the high school is listed as one of the high schools available to students for the 2014-15 school year.
