On December 2nd, 2009, the Queen Anne's County Board of Education voted to reconfigure our neighboring schools, KIES & BES, into a K-5 model.
Their decision to reconfigure was not based on any compelling evidence to support that this was in the best interest of the education of our children and our community.
Our objection to the reconfiguration and redistricting was based on the lack of objective goals, lack of data, lack of financial details for funding, lack of a timeline and lack of adequate community input.
Our objections were presented to the board on January 20th, 2010.
The Board of Education refused to amend their vote for reconfiguration despite our opposition.
We are requesting that the Board of Education considers other alternatives that support our community and the educational excellence of our schools.
During these tough economic times, the Board of Education is obligated to be more fiscally responsible to its tax paying citizens.

We, the undersigned, request that the members of the Queen Anne's County Board of Education rescind your vote for reconfiguration of KIES & BES.
We ask that you take into consideration all of the information presented to you on January 20th, 2010.
We request that you consider other alternatives that support our community and the educational excellence of our schools.
