The changes that have been put in place for the up coming 2014-2015 school year for the Extended Day program are unfair to parents and children. It is no longer first come first serve; it is now a "random" drawing from the school board member(s) of who gets accepted into Extended Day. What happens if parents can't find alternative after school care that is as affordable as the Extended Day Program, if they don't make the "random" drawing? What happens if one sibling gets "picked" and one does not? The parents will be forced to either quit hard to find employment, or reduce hours to accommodate the children who are not picked in their "random" drawings.

This change was NOT discussed with parents. There are no written policies on the Extended Day program. This change was also NOT VOTED ON at any school board meeting; it was a private meeting between school board members.
If you agree that this is completely unfair, and it is going to put many financial hardships on your family, please sign this Petition to have the school board establish written policies, and to stop this from happening until parents can be notified of "possible" changes, and allowed to voice their concerns!
