Open Invitation to SCS Stakeholders to inform the parents: Town Hall Meeting Monday, May 22

Dear Editor,

Please see below an urgent invitation signed by 50 parents/guardians requesting for the SCS school board and other stakeholders to attend a public meeting on Monday May 22, 2017 at the Sunny Valley Youth Center at 6:30 pm to discuss serious issues that are facing/affecting the Saba Comprehensive School.

The parents waited long enough for the schoolboard (SEF) to arrange a meeting so we had to take it upon ourselves to do it.

Due to the fact these issues are very important and crucial with time also drawing near for the school to go on summer break, we need to know what is going on.

Even though this meeting is last minute we do hope that all stakeholders will attend this very important meeting to receive the clarification that is badly needed.

Sincerely,
On behalf of Concerned Parents
Christalle Klaber

With this notice we expect the Saba Educational Foundation to come and answer our questions pertaining to Saba Comprehensive School.

We, the parents, are SCS’ key stakeholders and we have yet to be provided with any concrete information about how these forthcoming changes will impact your children’s future.

Our children’s future is paramount and we expect Saba Educational Foundation Board members to meet with us in order to understand how this situation developed and now it will be rectified.

Key Discussion Topics

  • SCS’ financials
  • Process being used to select which teachers will be terminated
  • Process being used to select which classes will be eliminating

It takes a village to raise a child.

Opinion: We need to know what is going on at the SCS
