Taft High School: TOWN HALL MEETING TO DISCUSS CHAMPS CHARTER - 7pm Tuesday, 22 April

Town Hall Meeting Set to Discuss CHAMPS Charter; Guests include Canter, Cortines and Duffy;  All are urged to attend

A town hall meeting will be held April 22nd, at 7:00 pm in Taft Hall to discuss LAUSD's offer to house CHAMPS Charter School on the Taft campus. Board of Education member Marlene Canter, LAUSD senior deputy superintendent Ramon Cortines, UTLA president A. J. Duffy, as well as other representatives from LAUSD and UTLA will be there to answer questions and hear concerns.

The Taft School Site Council (SSC) recently sent a letter to Marlene Canter, Jean Brown, and David L. Brewer III asking them to rescind the charter offer. There are several ramifications to having a charter on the Taft campus that could negatively affect student achievement and school climate according to the SSC letter.
