(Español abajo) On Tuesday evening, over 100 parents, current and past students, and educators attended an extremely contentious meeting with SDW administrators about the future of the Personalized Learning Programs (PLP) in three of the district’s middle schools. Superintendent James Sebert, Deputy Superintendent Jen Gennerman and Director of Middle School Teaching and Learning Deirdre Garcia, along with the principals of Butler, Horning and Les Paul presented the reasoning for the discontinuation of the program. School board members Diane Voit, Mark Borowski, and Karrie Kozlowski were also present.

Alliance Statement on Discontinuation of Middle School Personalized Learning Programs (Compass, Flight, Quest)
The decision to discontinue Compass, Flight, and Quest is being made with no plan, no parental input, no data, and no alternatives. We encourage any family who has a student currently involved in the program, or who might want to have their student involved in the future, to please attend the meeting tomorrow evening to share your thoughts with district administration.
