Reminder on Contacting the School Board
I know we all live busy lives juggling many things on our plates, so I just wanted to send out a reminder to let the Board of Education know that we would like advanced and gifted education in our schools. If you have any specific preferences, such as magnet schools, IB schools, pull-out programs, partial acceleration, or other methods, please let the Board know. The Board of Education will not act unless they know that this is an important issue to us.
To write the Board, go to the Contact the Board web page and fill out the form. Thanks for taking a few minutes to help make a difference!
Also, I will be speaking during Public Comment at the beginning of the meeting this Monday to encourage the Board to bring the International Baccalaureate program to K-12 for Rochester Community Schools. This has been a highly successful program in the Bloomfield school district, but only about 25% of Rochester students who want to go are chosen in the lottery. Why should the other 75% miss out when RCS could offer the same experience for our children?
Thank you for reading Rochester SAGE!
