Dear CP Community,
Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 21, at 6pm, the Board of Education will hold a virtual Long-Term Planning Committee Meeting to discuss the future of PPS, including how to manage the growing enrollments at PPS elementary schools. As part of their plan, they will announce that they are re-introducing an English-only track at CP in grades K-4. Approximately 50+ current JP students who are zoned for CP will transfer into new English-only 1st-4th grade classes. CP will also have two English-only Kindergarten classes.
We realize the English-only track raises many concerns for our DLI students, and for the overall wellbeing of our school community. Even though PPS appears to have already made this decision, it’s not too late to continue to advocate for CP as a whole, and for the future of DLI.
Tomorrow’s meeting is public and open to the community. Please join us! (Zoom link)
We also suggest changing your screen name to show you are from CP (ex: Parker Bear CP). (Due to the recent situation at the high school, there may not be many opportunities for CP parents to be heard, so showing our affiliation is important for representation.)
Board of Ed Long Term Planning Committee Meeting, Tuesday, March 21 at 6 p.m.
This meeting will address future plans for addressing increasing enrollments across PPS.
6-7 p.m. Open to public comment
7 p.m.-8 p.m. District to present demographic plan
8 p.m. More public comment to follow
If you cannot attend, you can still take a moment to write to the District administration to express your opinion.
