On Tuesday, April 15th, the Alliance held a meeting for custodians to give an update on the privatization concerns and rumors. Highlights of the meeting included:
- Reviewed SAISD School Board resolution AGAINST privatization (passed at their April 14th meeting)
- Reviewed articles that documented the problems other districts have had when they hand over control of district services to private companies
- Discussed views of school board members
- Reviewed actions the Alliance took (letter to school board, presentation at the April 14th school board meeting, research)
The group decided that they would like to meet regularly with the Alliance, at least four times per year, to talk about and work on issues. A meeting has been set for May 13 from 4:00-5:30 PM at the Alliance Office. Please RSVP to 225-7174 or to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on May 13!
