Supt. Roger Milton, We Choose Progress! We Support You!
UPDATE: Not only was our mission accomplished, The superintendent's reconfiguration plan passed with a 3-2 vote at the special call school board meeting on April 4. Your efforts and advocacy paid off. We chose progress over failure. Our message of "doing nothing is not an option" was heard not only by the Superintendent but the School Board as well. Thank each of you for all your support.
UPDATE: Our mission was accomplished! Although Superintendent Milton did not put a plan for reconfiguration on the school board agenda for the March 28th, He did state in the meeting that he would be recommending a plan for reconfiguration at a special call school board meeting on April 4. The school board members will have an opportunity to vote on his proposal. Keep signing and showing support! The comments are compelling.
Superintendent Milton abruptly pulled the plans for reconfiguration of Gadsden County Schools. It came as a total surprise. However, we would like the superintendent to know that we support a plan for reconfiguration and DOING NOTHING IS NOT AN OPTION!
OUR CHILDREN DESERVE BETTER!!!
At this present time, there are not enough students enrolled in our schools to fund the operational cost of the thirteen (13) sites in which we currently manage. Lack of funding presents problems with maintaining infrastructures; recruiting and retaining highly qualified teachers and support staff; and ensuring that schools are provided with all of the resources needed to develop well-rounded students.
The Superintendent is commended for his BOLD steps in leading this district toward change for progress. WE NEED YOUR HELP! Let's send a message to the Gadsden County School Board that the stakeholders welcome change.
If you support PROGRESS, sign this petition!
