PETITION FOR THE REINSTATEMENT OF JOHN KADZ
Dear Dr. David Docherty, President, Mount Royal University and Dr. Charles Webber, Dean, Faculty of Continuing Education and Extension:
We, the students, parents, donors and Conservatory supporters, have recently been informed that Mr. John Kadz, a long standing and invaluable member of Mount Royal University Conservatory, has not been offered a teaching contract for the upcoming academic year. Losing Mr. Kadz's abilities and experience as a gifted teacher would be a tragic loss to both the Conservatory and its students. Given that the university has not officially informed students that he will not be returning and the fact that the Conservatory has been accepting payments for cello lessons in his name, students have been led to assume that Mr. Kadz would continue to be their teacher for this next year. Making this known at this late date has not allowed students to make an informed decision on their music education for the upcoming year.
We ask that you immediately renew Mr. John Kadz's teaching contract with Mount Royal University Conservatory for the upcoming academic year 2016-2017.
