Report Cards Not Progress Letters - Our Kids Deserve Better
Our kids are hanging in the balance of the current work to rule action by the teacher's union. The teachers have submitted their grades, but there's a catch, they can't enter them electronically leaving it up to the Principals to perform this function. There are many solutions to this issue, but the board has chosen to go the route of not bending to the union and therefore not providing the grades to the kids. Bargaining is tricky business, with every concession seen as a major loss, and the kids are the bargaining chip - no pain, no gain! Parents are not powerless though. We have a voice and we are speaking up today.
We the undersigned call upon the Board of Education, Superintendents and Trustees to use every avenue available to process student's report cards and distribute them by the end of the school year. Our children have a right to know the outcome of their school year in the format of grades on a report card. Withholding this information is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the parents, and tax payers the Board of Education serves.
