After Ms. Ustabecir outlined the proposed new budget at the parent meeting last Tuesday, the Sayre LSC approved it at a special meeting Thursday night. According to LSC member Jennifer O’Connor, letters will be included stating the LSC does not agree with CPS’ budget cuts. The letters are addressed to Chandra James (Interim Chief of Schools of Austin North-Lawndale Network), Ms. Barbara Byrd-Bennett (Chief Executive Officer) and David Vitale (CPS School Board President).
Sayre parent Naima McDermott and others are organizing a parent/community letter-writing effort, look for volunteers on Monday after school for more information. If you can help draft the letter or volunteer on Monday, please contact Naima at 973-207-8974 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or join the meeting at the North Avenue Starbucks this Saturday (June 22) at 5pm.
Another parent meeting is being discussed, we’ll post more info here as we get it. Please join the discussion and get up-to-date info at the Sayre FFO Yahoogroup.
