Save Dan and Sasha!
The Department of Education (DOE) has put a hiring freeze on permanent part-time (known as f-status) art and music teachers. Our amazing music teacher, Dan and our exceptional art teacher, Sasha are both in this category. Of course Muscota's administration applied for an exception right away, but our request was denied. We are appealing again, this time from the parent community.
Unfortunately, the Parents Association cannot contribute to teacher salaries; to hire Dan and Sasha, we must have our second appeal for an exception to the hiring freeze approved.
We ask for your help in this—we've written an appeal letter on behalf of Muscota parents and would like to accompany it with a petition that shows the DOE that our appeal reflects the feeling of the entire community, not just the opinion of a passionate few.
Please take a moment to sign this petition and leave a comment to show the Department of Education how very important Dan and Sasha are to our children and to our school.
