Our petition to retain Principal Lynn Jenkins at FCHS generated more than 300 signatures. We presented those signatures at tonight's Board of Ed meeting.
We gave many examples of Principal Jenkins's success in her short time at Flint Central, such as establishing an afterschool reading and math program, reinstating the PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association), decreasing the number of violent incidents on campus, and bridging gaps between the school and the community.
We will keep you informed of the BoE's decision in the following days, but we consider our efforts a success and Mrs. Jenkins has expressed her gratitude and appreciation for all who gave their support.
Much thanks for your partnership!
