Stop The Plan For Center Schools In Our District-CORRECTION OF PLAN

45 Signatures | Sign Now

Created January 29, 2016 by slhanna23



I apologize I didn’t have the exact plan correct so I updated the information, the plan listed is now correct. Delavan darien school district is planning on creating center schools. This would mean splitting our grades up and placing them in separate schools. The plan is as follows : Early Childhood, 4-year-old and 5-year-old kindergarten classes at Wileman Elementary, Grades 1, 2 and 3 at Turtle Creek Elementary and Grades 4 and 5 at Darien Elementary. Meaning every  2-3 years the kids would need to transition to a new school. Parents with multiple children would need to plan accordingly. The district is claiming they are doing this to save money but does it have to be at the risk of the needs of our children and families? Relationships with the teachers and older children as role models will be out of the question. Please sign this petition to stop center schools from developing.

    There is no evidence that this plan will help our children academically. Please do not go through with this plan.

  2. Cathy Duesterbeck UNITED STATES

    There are many reasons to vote against this — one major one is how far the schools are apart as well as how long kids would have to be on the bus, the lack of older role models for kids and that is just the icing on the cake.

    I feel cheated. I attended the last meeting in December, and feel like I didn’t get all the information. It was very one-sided. I heard a lot of what was good about this plan, and that we need a change – but not much else. Now after listening to my kids’ teachers and looking more into the facts of what this will look like, I do not think it has our kids’ best interest in mind. Not in THIS community. This community will only thrive with relationship – not just with their peers, but with all grades – especially the littles w/ the older students. Please don’t take that away from our kids – and please listen to our teachers who are not for this! This is not a fix & won’t save $. It will drive good families away & make for unhappy staff.

    VOTE NO!

  5. Toni Bethke UNITED STATES

    I don’t see how this change will impact student scores, I think there should be more alternatives explored. The perceive benefits do not outweigh the costs in busing and resulting open enrollment.
