Petition to Improve Amherst's Approach to Math
First, I want to make it clear that I am happy with many aspects of the Amherst Central School District. However, I have concerns about the math program currently in use at Smallwood Drive School and Windermere Boulevard School. I believe that this program is resulting in my child not reaching their potential in this important field. Unfortunately, I may not have the time to go to board meetings, PTA meetings or meetings with you to discuss at length the district's plans to make corrections. Please recognize that I am concerned about the current math curriculum. While I may not know exactly what to change or how to change it, I urge you to consider the fact that I do believe that SOMETHING needs to change. I support the creation of a task force comprising at least 4 concerned parents and an equal number of district representatives to thoroughly evaluate the existing and alternative math programs. This committee should strive to ensure that all of the district’s children receive the best possible math education. Please contact Barbara at 839-5215 or Larry at 803-1966 for more information.
