(APT) URGENT: Support OSA Teachers at OSA Board mtg Thursday 5/28
Wed, May 27 3:28pm

Message from the APT Board

On behalf and in Support of the OSA Teachers and Staff 

Please remember to sign up for public comment and have your voice be heard.



The OSA board held a finance committee meeting today to discuss loss of funding related to COVID. During the meeting they discussed different scenarios that could save the school money next year considering the likelihood that we will continue with remote learning or some sort of hybrid. One scenario involves shifting  should we continue remote is potentially cutting operational staff and possibly arts teachers. Most of these staff are POC who have dedicated their time and lives to the school for many years. WE NEED TO SUPPORT THESE STAFF AND ARTS TEACHERS during this time of uncertainty.

Additionally, your teachers still do not have their offer letters to come back and teach next year. We need to demand the following:

* A restructure of the OSA board to include community members (students, teachers, staff and parents reps)
* That the OSA board begins fundraising for the school (which they don’t currently do but they make decisions for all of us)
* Offer letters for the 2020-21 school year for all teachers and staff
* A committment to put people first as budgets are being drafted
