OPA SOC Families Need Miss Bova!!
On Wednesday, June 17, 2020, the day after the 2020 school year ended at Oxford Preparatory Academy - South Orange County (OPA SOC), the administration informed Miss Aubree Bova that she was being “let go” from her position as a Kindergarten teacher and would not be returning in the fall.
Unfortunately, the administration made this decision without giving due consideration for Miss Bova’s immense talents as a teacher, as well as the love that OPA SOC students and families have for her. Many of the children in Miss Bova’s Kindergarten class this year were from families that were new to OPA, and Miss Bova exceeded their expectations in every measure. Other families were hopeful that their younger children would benefit from Miss Bova’s incredible teaching in the years to come. To put this in the simplest terms, OPA SOC needs Miss Bova!! Miss Bova LOVES her students, their families, and OPA, and removing her will result in a great loss for the entire OPA community.
The Oxford Preparatory Academy Board of Directors should act quickly to address this issue by: (1) investigating the alleged grounds for Miss Bova’s removal from her position by the OPA SOC administration; and, (2) reversing the incorrect decision to remove Miss Bova, and re-hiring her as a Kindergarten teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.
OPA SOC is more than just a K-8 public charter school...it is a close-knit community of students, families, and teachers working together to provide the best educational experience possible for our children. Miss Bova is an integral member of this community, and she should be re-hired as soon as possible.
