Modified Lite Calendar on Sept. 9 Board Meeting Agenda

Original post made by Karen, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Aug 28, 2014

I just read on the front page of The Independent, "Pleasanton School District May Reconsider 'Modified Lite' Calendar. Thank you to the parents who went to the meeting on August 19 to voice their concerns about this change again. I will definitely be attending the board meeting on September 9, and now that other districts are publishing calendars into 2016, maybe the board will realize that all of the surrounding districts are not planning to follow Pleasanton.

Two ways to get involved with the Pleasanton school calendar change issue:
Sign the petition entitled "revoke the calendar change vote" at and attend the school board meeting on Sept. 9th at 7 p.m. at 4665 Bernal Ave.

I find it interesting that there was no coverage of this in the Pleasanton Weekly.... Also it should be noted that the parent survey was made available only on June 4 and the decision was made on June 17 -- NOT EVEN TWO WEEKS LATER. Not enough time to collect an appropriate sample, assess or weigh the results. This decision has substantial impact on the lives of students and their families and should be reviewed much more carefully with far greater transparency.

I'm so glad that this has been been globally exposed on! The whole world should know about how the good citizens of Pleasanton have been cheated by the school district. Having 10 weeks of summer is our right and everyone will want to support us and sign this petition like 221 people already have. I don't care about the kid dying of cancer whose insurance company is denying him needed treatment or about the 95 year old woman being evicted from her apartment of 53 years. is there to make a difference for our children of pleasanton being abused by the PUSD, please put your name down forever to be searched on this important issue.

A few days ago I signed the petition using 10 different names. Do you think anyone will check? If so, how do I get my signatures removed? I do not want to face legal repatriations from the state. Also, who are the original prothyetizers on this?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
