To all the residents of the Southgate community and in particular to those who were at the Board Study Session last night, I urge you to talk to the Walter Hays AAAG rep. about your concerns. If you do not know who this is either because of lack of notification or the fact that you do not have kids in school yet and feel out of the loop, then ask the Hays school office or PTA to give you the reps. name.
To all in the Walter Hays community, please ask your rep, for updates on the process and give any concerns you have to your rep.
To all concerned regardless of where you live, each school in PAUSD has one rep and one alternate and they should be reporting back to you in someway. If you feel that your voice has not been heard, do get in touch with your rep. Many of us reps. have been doing surveys and writing reports for the school newsletters. If these are not getting to you, ask your school office for more information.
This process is being done in a very civil manner and we are discussing all proposals and listening to all concerns. We have had no problems with any type of partisan issues and all get along extremely well. The tone of the meetings is businesslike and civil, often with a little humor thrown in. We are only discussing proposals which have been given to us for our comments and coming up with what we hope are constructive ideas. From last night's meeting and the data that was presented, you can see that there is a lot of very difficult aspects to take into consideration. There will be no magic formula and the result of all this is not in our hands.
So, once again, I urge anyone with concerns to talk to your reps.fyn
