More shame on STL School Reformers: Community Schools to Close

Dear member of the community,

Your support is needed to save community education in St. Louis Public Schools.

All 10 community education centers are slated to close permanently as of May 30, 2014.

I believe in community education and will take a stand at the next Special Administrative Board (SAB) meeting, to be held on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 6:00 pm at 801 N. 11th.  Please join me in supporting the young people in our city by advocating for our community education centers to remain open.
Here’s what you can do to help: 

1.       Plan to attend the SAB meeting on Thursday, May 29 and take a stand with me.
Literally, I will ask audience members who support community education to stand in a show of support – the more people we have present the more influence we will have as a community.

2.       Invite others who believe in community education to the SAB meeting, where they too can make their voice heard.
Let’s achieve standing room only at this meeting!

3.       If you, or a student or parent who you know has been directly impacted through the community education centers in SLPS, please attend, 
share your experience and voice your supportYou may also contact the superintendent (345-2500) and SAB directly (345-2304) to express your support of community education in SLPS.

Thank you in advance for taking action!

In solidarity,

Rachel Delcau
