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.

Stand Together Tomorrow

With the latest proposal from the Superintendent as a concrete example of what continued local aid cuts, and inaction on reform can mean for Beverly, there is no better time to take the message to Beacon Hill.

Join the Beverly Chapter of Stand for Children, tomorrow for their 2010 Day on the Hill and tell our leaders in Boston what their policies are doing to our kids here in Beverly, and learn about what you can do to make a difference at a State level.

Busses leave Lynch Park at 8:20 and should return by 1:00. Come on down to Lynch, and get on the bus.

For more information see this post or contact Julie DeSilva.
