Equal Rights for Haskell Academy
Petition Background (Preamble):
All that is threatened, however, because District 205 administration is not giving Haskell students the same rights as all other elementary students in Rockford. The administration has indicated that Haskell students will NOT be allowed to be "grandfathered in" and remain at Haskell next year. They will be required to attend their zone school or Lewis Lemon Elementary.
The administration's goal is to bring Lewis Lemon to capacity. However, 90% of Haskell parents say they will not send their children to Lewis Lemon. The plan will not work.
As stated in a Rockford Register Star editorial about Haskell on April 4, 2010: "Changing the school calendar alone didn’t lead to the improvements. The hard work of administrators, staff and teachers and how they made the calendar work for them and their students were key."
Just like at other schools, students must be allowed to be "grandfathered in" at Haskell in order to save this proven learning community.
