Re “LAUSD meeting on the middle (school),” Oct. 24 issue
There IS another option. The Laurel Cinematic Arts and Creative Technologies K-8 Magnet was approved by the board last June. I am a teacher there and was closely involved with the principal and the rest of the team in developing the proposal.
We are currently in our implementation year. Apparently, at the meeting on [Oct. 21], some disgruntled parents from the West Hollywood area indicated that they were “promised” Laurel as the site for their new academy.
This is news for us. We are in the choices brochure, we have been promoting our magnet in fairs and have been signing up families on a daily basis. We are blindsided by this. We were under the impression that our magnet was a done deal.
Apparently, there have been shady and secret deals happening behind our backs. We have played fair. Now it’s time for other outside and hostile forces to play fair. In a time of limited resources, I think it is outrageous to divert funds to a new middle school when there are two options already available (Laurel and Bancroft). I am against Laurel being handed over to this other group.
