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.

Wicked Local Discussion

There is a pretty lively conversation about the override going on over at the Beverly Citizen's online forum, Wicked Local Beverly. Plenty of views on both sides of the issue. Go there, and make sure the views of parents are fairly represented.

The Salem News also has a couple going on here and here.
