  Fight against CRT in Schools
Posted by: Sarahbelle - 06-08-2021, 08:19 PM - Forum: My Forum - Replies (10)

Lots has been happening to oppose the new crital theory curriculum - thank you to many informed and concerned citizens!!!!

Unfortunately, the pro-CRT/anti-racism/pro LBGTQIA++ voices are loud (and deceitful.) 

The next school board meeting is this Thursday. If you have kids in the school system or not, this affects us all. Please spread the word about what is going on!

  School Board Meeting Thursday may 27
Posted by: fotini75 - 05-26-2021, 04:00 PM - Forum: My Forum - No Replies

Good morning everyone, a bunch of us will be speaking during the community response portion of the school board meeting tomorrow night, May 27. The more people who sign up to speak, the better. If you are at all concerned about the new race and gender identity curriculum at the school, we would love it if you voiced your concerns. Here’s a link to sign up as well as the link to log into the live stream if you just want to listen to the meeting. You do not  have to have a child in Albemarle County public schools. Anyone can speak at these meetings. You need to sign up no later than tomorrow May 27 by 2 PM and can back out of speaking anytime up to them calling you to speak during the meeting.

Hey all!

So I've seen people's interest in getting together and Pro-rn seems the popular choice (tho people are open to a private meeting in someone's home too).

I'm wondering if we can plan something in June. How's friday evenings?

Fridays in June: 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th.

What are good dates for everybody? How's June 4th or 18th?

  ACPS Curriculum Complaint Process
Posted by: fotini75 - 04-21-2021, 05:35 PM - Forum: My Forum - Replies (2)

There is a process by which community members can file complaints about curriculum, policies, material, etc in the Albemarle County public school system.  My husband and I have contemplated this process for a certain book my son's class was reading but we were able to get it removed from the curriculum without going through this process.  See links below

Public Complaints Policy: http://esb.k12albemarle.org/Reference_Library/ESB_Policies_and_Regulations/Policies//INC_0115.pdf

  Critical Race Theory in ACPS
Posted by: fotini75 - 04-21-2021, 01:24 AM - Forum: My Forum - Replies (4)

If you care about what our students are being taught about racism in our schools please read the below email from the Henley School Principal, submit your feedback/questions via the link in the email and attend the meeting on Thursday to speak up. The more they hear what we think the better

Good afternoon, Henley Families,

          Now this is the kind of weather that makes Stage 4 even better than it normally is! We hope you are having a great week.

          For some time now, we have been updating our families about our Courageous Conversations about Race (CCAR) professional development with our staff. After building our capacity as a staff, we would like to bring students into the conversation in Advisory. A lot has happened in our country in the last year and we believe it is our responsibility to create safe spaces for students to process, with their peers and classmates, what is happening on the national, state, and local landscape. We will follow school board policy as faciliators of these conversations. I am including the policy here. http://esb.k12albemarle.org/Reference_Li...s//INB.pdf


          Next week we will start our CCAR curriculum and continue through a series of concepts: identity, community, culture, bias, racism, and anti-racism. The lessons will culminate in a discovery and study of ACPS's anti-racism policy here http://esb.k12albemarle.org/Reference_Li...s//ACC.pdf


We do not aim to be political; rather, we want students to learn more about themselves, their community, their place in their community, and the world around them through the lens of being a student in an anti-racist school community. Our lessons align with Albemarle County curriculum.

          We understand that families may have questions and/or be curious about the curriculum and how they can reinforce our teaching and learning at home. Our Diversity Resource Teachers (DRTs) and the admin team will be available on Thursday for our next Coffee w Costa (5:00 pm, link below my signature) to talk through these lessons prior to next week. In advance we'd like to provide you with the Scope and Sequence of the lessons and some family resources that you may find helpful. Here https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jHdX...9Oi58/edit


          As you look over the resources provided, please submit any feedback, questions, or topics that you would like addressed on Thursday HERE. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQ...g/viewform



It is helpful to have some idea about what's on your minds prior to getting started.

          Lastly, I wanted to add that the concepts in the lessons are the same in grades 6-8; however, grade 8 is piloting lessons created by all of the DRTs in the middle school and grade 6-7 are following along with lessons created at Henley, but they are not necessarily doing the same activities as the 8th graders. Our long term goal is to build out this CCAR curriculum in all of the grades and this gives us an opportunity to get feedback on the lessons from all of our stakehlolders.

          I know that's a lot to process, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions and I hope to see you on Thursday. If you cannot attend, the forum will be recorded and posted. Thanks so much!



Best,

Beth Costa. principal

  Back the Blue on Saturday
Posted by: kevin - 04-20-2021, 12:22 PM - Forum: My Forum - Replies (1)

I just heard on the radio there's a 'back the blue' event at the Rotunda at 2PM Saturday. There will be a speaker and delegate Freitas will be there. This is apparently in response to the 'defund the police' event recently held outside Cville police station, where they were advocating for doing away with CPD. The sheep are so unbelievably stupid. We will be going on Saturday.
