This site aims to inform and mobilize Beverly parents to take an active role in all issues related to the funding and operation of the city's schools. It was launched in the spring of 2008, when the city saw its first-ever override attempt fail, followed by the closure of a nearly-new elementary school. Subsequent years have seen further cuts that have led to larger class sizes across the district. While the opening of an impressive new high school and plans to replace the city's aging middle school give us reason to be optimistic, the school community must be ever vigilant in demanding appropriate school funding by city and state governments, and better community communications from the district and School Committee.

    Trying to call Karen Fogerty this morning but it just rings and rings with no answering machine/voicemail.
    I've emailed Karen (my committee rep), my city councilor and the President of the council. If anyone gets in contact with a sympathetic ear please shout out.
