Keep Mr. Tran Full Time at PHS
We oppose the proposal of splitting PHS counselor Mr. Minh Tran between Marshall and PHS. Mr. Tran services far more students than he is assigned because he is committed to the success of all PHS students. In addition, as the Puente Project counselor, GCA counselor, National Honor Society advisor, California Scholarship Federation advisor, and Varsity Golf Coach he is essential to PHS in a full time capacity.
Splitting the counselor will short-change the students and families at both campuses. Mr. Tran's job is all encompassing and cannot be divided. It is this type of decision that drives people away from the public school. In times of declining enrollment we should be supporting the staff that bring in families, keep students engaged, and encourage success. We strengthen the school by shoring up outstanding staff and we weaken it terribly by attenuating them.
Please do not finalize this proposal and keep Mr. Tran at PHS full time for
all of the students!
