Building a strong future for Nashville requires a high quality education for all of Nashville's children, regardless of zip code, race, or socioeconomic status. Valor Collegiate Academy intends to provide a world-class, college preparatory experience to students of all backgrounds in Nashville.
Valor teaches a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum that is truly personalized for each student. Through a personalized learning plan, each student is encouraged and coached on their path towards acceptance to a four-year college or University. Valor uses rich data to help students grow as scholars and as human beings in a supportive, high expectations community.
Lead Founder Todd Dickson brings over a decade of educational experience to Nashville. He is most recognized for his success with Summit Preparatory Charter in Redwood City, CA. Under his leadership, Summit Prep was named the #118 best public high school in America for the first time in 2008, and the #76 best public high school in 2009. In 2010, Summit was named one of the Top 10 Transformational Schools in the country by Newsweek, and has been featured as an education solution in the nationally acclaimed documentary Waiting for Superman.
Nashville’s Metropolitan Board of Public Education will be considering Valor Collegiate Academy's charter application in May of this year. A vital part of their decision will be based on the support of parents throughout the Nashville community. This petition is meant to demonstrate the excitement and support of Nashville parents in having MNPS provide this new opportunity for their children. Through this we hope to show the School Board the positive impact Valor Collegiate Academy will make upon its arrival.

In the 2013- 2016 CBE Capital Plan, the Royal Oak Middle School has moved from 2nd to 7th on the priority list for new school construction, which is alarming given the fact that this school has been ranked at a priority 2 for the past three consecutive years.
Upon reviewing the document in detail, we have found an error in the points awarded to the Royal Oak Rocky Ridge Middle School, based on the CBE ranking criteria.
Given the fact that the Alberta Provincial Government has promised the construction of 50 new schools, this is a time sensitive matter, which requires an immediate review.
The O.B. Laing Middle School is in danger of becoming an apartment building, therefore losing the historic value permanently.
Please tell the Algona City Council members to HOLD OFF on their vote to sell this building until other options are considered. This building has lots of potential - don't let it become another victim of community apathy!
Monday May 24, 2010 there will be a meeting at E.T. Belsaw-Mount Vernon School with Dr. Nichols the Mobile County Superintendent. During this meeting he will be proposing that we close our Middle School and that our students be “BUSED” to Rosa A. Lott Middle School in Citronelle Alabama, 30 minutes away.
He may feel that it is best for our children; however, collective as a community, we do not. We had a town meeting on May 21, 2010 and we have decided not to let this happen. Help save E.T. Belsaw Middle School from Closing.
On Monday, May 17, 2010, the Town of Wallingford, CT, Board of Education voted to eliminate the Middle Schools after school sports programs. Our aim is to get the funding reinstated or at least have the option to initiate a "pay for play" system. Please sign the petition below so we can let them know how important the sports program is to the middle school students in Wallingford.
We the People Under signed do think that Becky Ugander is a Very Influential and loved teacher that teaches at Moore middle school.
Middle school kids need their school. Craig has been in lawrence way longer than fall creek valley and belzer.
I AM STARTING THIS PETITION TO TRY AND CONVINCE THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND SUPERINTENDENT KRINER CASH TO KEEP COACH DARREN STEVENS ON STAFF AT KINGSBURY MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR THE 2009-2010 SCHOOL YEAR AND BEYOND.
COACH STEVENS IS A GREAT TEACHER, COACH AND MENTOR TO OUR YOUTH, THERE SHOULD BE OTHER WAYS TO CUT THE BUDGET THAN LAYING OFF GOOD PEOPLE. COACH DARREN IS ALWAYS THERE FOR THE KIDS AS A COACH, TEACHER AND MENTOR. HE TRULY CARES!!
We all have friends but we barely see them before and after school and some people never see them. Relationships can fade and friendships fail and some peoples social lives go down the drain.
Teenagers are the future and its harder to learn when we have no release of the energy we have built up all day and it can be released in harmful or disruptive way.
A few of the students had the idea to start an "Extra Credit Bank" at school. This would enable kids to do certain assignments for extra credit that could be put into an account.
These points could be used towards any class, with a cap at a certain amount depending on the teacher.
This could help many kids grades out a lot, and think about it... whats bad about extra credit?
Formal dances were previously allowed at Coquihalla Middle School until this year, when the faculty decided that there was not going to be a formal dance for the Grade 8 class.
We, the Grade 8 students of CMS, believe this restriction to be a, in lack of a better word, stupid, pathetic, and outragous act.
For many students the year-end formal is the highlight of their Grade 8 year, and it does not seem fair in any way that these teachers should be able to take that away from us because of their personal beliefs.
Students at Colina Middle School feel like they should have the privilege of bringing their personal backpacks to class.
It would save us many tardies because students will not have to rush to their locker to get their books.
When my child was in the 5th grade he had a teacher that had a homework line, so if I thought for one moment that my son had homework when he told me he didn't, I called the homework line the teacher had set up and I heard a recording from that teacher what they did in class and what homework my son had.
A homework line would be beneficial in 3 ways;
1.) Parents can call to get the homework for the day,
2.) Children can call to make sure they wrote down all of their homework and didn't miss anything,
3.) Children can call if they are absent and do not want to get behind they can get that days assignments.
The current walkway is located between 629 and 631 Worcester Drive within the Grande at Kings Woods. It is used by children of the Grande to traverse between their properties and the West Deptford Middle School.
The property owners of 629 and 631 Worcester Drive are requesting that it be moved due to various reasons. According to Eric Campo, West Deptford Township Administrator, there are three alternatives regarding the placement of the walkway:
1. No action. Walkway remains at its current location.
2. Relocate the walkway behind the the following residences:
615 Worcester Drive
617 Worcester Drive
619 Worcester Drive
621 Worcester Drive
623 Worcester Drive
625 Worcester Drive
627 Worcester Drive
3. Remove the walkway from its current location and pursue the following options:
a. Bus the students to the Middle School.
b. Have the students walk onto Grove Road to the Middle School.
We recently found out that Stewart Middle School will not be hosting their annual 8th grade formal dance for the students.
An "Improvement Plan" has been proposed and is seriously being considered for next year (school year '06/'07) for the Triton Middle School. The plan would eliminate the current tracking or leveling of the 7th and 8th grades.
In other words, there would no longer be advanced classes; all classes would be heterogeneous (the same).
We should have lockers to protect our backs from heavy backpacks.
Is your backpack heavy that it hurts after a while?
Lockers hold our stuff until the next class.
The Crystal Lake School District 47 Board of Education will host a public hearing on Nov. 6 to consider a proposal from the superintendent to alter the middle school day.
The new schedule will include more time for literacy, more time for math and more time for science. The math curriculum is based on a 60-minute period, and District 47 is currently teaching it in 40 minutes. The 40-minute science period allows little time for lab work, the hands-on experience children need.
The now required cooking and sewing classes (these are required, not electives) would be replaced by a life skills class that includes the study of money management and child care. These changes are not being proposed because of standardized tests. These changes are being proposed because they are what's best for the children in today's society.
Parents who are petitioning to have the new middle school slated to be built on the corner of Slaughter Lane and 1826 put on the drawing board to be completed and opened for the 2008 school year.
There is no reason to delay this project, as the land is already designated and approved, the bond is approved and the number of students would already fill the school to near or at capacity.

WE want additional lockers built to accomadate the 6th grade PE clothes, shoes and extra cirricular activities (track etc.)
The Birmingham, MI School Board is set to vote on the middle school restructuring plan on February 7th.
It is our belief that this plan is not sufficiently developed to vote on at this time. It is our desire that they postpone this vote, until the issues raised by the community are addressed.
For further information on the background of this petition, send an email to the Perhamfamily@comcast.net.

Let us, the students of Benjamin Sherman Middle School, have a say in what our school looks like.
This wall has nothing to do with our school and doesn't support school spirit.
You have ignored all other petitions but the constitution states that we as people have a right to voice our opinion.
A foul smelling odor has been present the entire 2004/5 school year at Bryant Middle School. The odor is more prevalent in the 6th grade area of the building. The odor gets into the students hair, skin, and clothing.
Attempts by the School District to date have not found the cause of the odor or eliminated the odor.
The Dearborn School District should immediately undertake the following actions:
- perform comprehensive air quality testing
- adhere to a rigorous schedule to determine the source of the odor
- take action to eliminate the odor and its source prior to the start of the 2005/06 school year
at Bryant Middle School to ensure the health, safety, and comfort of the children and staff.
The Danville Middle School in Danville Pennsylvania needs more choices for Vegetarians/Vegans.
School Lunch is a time of socializing and relaxing with your friends. It's the only time during school when you can be with friends, that you do not see in your classes. Now we have assigned seating that only allows us to hang out or talk with only a certain group of eleven people. If you gain or lose a few friends you automatically can not sit with the people that you want to.
To allow laptops, cell phones and gum at KMS.
I agree that laptops, cell phones, and gum should be allowed at the Kennett Middle School.
In 2002, Natick instituted a $250 per student school bus fee for elementary and middle school children living less than 2 miles from school. Those living beyong 2 miles of their school pay nothing for bus fees. As a result, nearly 60% of Natick families will pay no bus fees when their children begin middle school, and 25% will never pay bus fees. At the same time the 40% of Natick families living within 2 miles of both their elementary and middle schools are forced to buy bus fees for this entire time. At this same time, in 2003 the Natick School Department had a budgetary surplus, which it is directing toward eliminating this unfair burden on Natick families.
We wish to petition for the establishment of an able autistic unit attached to a mainstream middle school in the Kidderminster area of worcestershire.
We have concern about the fences, and gates in need of repairs at Waterford Middle School, particularly in the 5th and 6th grade classroom area. We are requesting the Waterford Unified School District, and or the City of Waterford to make the necessary repairs as soon as possible, to ensure the safety of our children.
Children are fighting, being pushed, climbing fences, and squeezing thru the fence.Teachers whom are opening the fences are trying to open the gate, but having difficulties passing thru all the children. Sometimes up 5-10 minutes after the bell has rung.
Are you aware that the property for the proposed Scripps Ranch middle school site is significantly smaller - half the size of Wangenheim - even though the number os students is greater than Wangenheim?
