it doesn't matter how many are out of district, they will not be kicked out no matter where the AH program ends up.
I don't believe, even though it's been said, that SP can accomedate all 250 kids. The curriculum is the same no matter year round or traditional.
plus many of the families work in pinehurst
as well, you should have your say! Come speak out on Monday as that will be the last chance you get!
I am not a crybaby because I want my child's school to stay open. I'm fighting for a cause that I believe in and I honestly believe it will cost the distrist more money to close the school than to keep it open!
what's wrong with choice? As more and more options are taken away from us from big government, what will be left?
In the real world it's usually not your best that loose their jobs and even then, it's usually done face to face and not in a mass phone call. Kids also need to learn that you stand up for what you believe in! Native, I will pray for you that you can find some compassion and not be so cold-hearted!
Are you guys kidding me? First off, I believe people knew quiet a bit in advance of the Pinecrest consolidation and were able to prepare for it. The parents and staff were informed by phone just 2 weeks ago. How would you feel if your employer did a mass call to you and told you you may not have a job next year? Where is the compassion for these people? If they can do this to AHES, they can do it to your school as well. Plus the fact that this closure does NOT just affect AHES, if affects all of Moore County School and people. It will not take long when the current schools will be filled to capacity and the School Board will come to it's citizens asking for money to build a new school! Will you be happy then? It's easy to sit on the sidelines and critize, but when you are in the mist of thing, I give every single parent kudos for fighting in what they believe! And just to boot- I believe transportation is more of a reason parents don't want to go to the yearround SP program then it is test scores.
AHS actually gets less per student than schools that are title one and has just as many kids per class as any other school
AHES does not get to hand pick their students. All applications go to central office, I believe to Brian Phillips and he or someone on his staff chooses who gets in and who goes on the wait list.
