Advocacy Alert


Dear Michelle,

Philadelphia art education needs your immediate help!

Last week we told you that administrative restructuring at the School District of Philadelphia could lead to the elimination of Tessie Varthas and Virginia Lam's positions. Effective the end of August, their positions will be eliminated, and they will be reassigned to teaching positions in individual schools. This will decrease the administrative and supervisory capacity in the Office of Creative and Performing Arts by fifty-percent.

Tell the School Reform Commission that Philadelphia students deserve centralized, expert and effective coordination within the Office of Creative and Performing Arts!

Attend the SRC meeting on Wednesday, August 20, 2008, 2pm at the Philadelphia School District Administration Building, 440 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, 2nd floor auditorium. Please attend-we need an overwhelming crowd!

Thank you for taking action!
