MASTERY SCHOOLS OF CAMDEN PARENTS AND STUDENTS TO DELIVER PETITION WITH OVER 850 SIGNATURES CALLING FOR MORE GREAT PUBLIC NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOLS
Prior to the Camden City School District board meeting, more than 50 Camden families will present Camden Schools Superintendent Paymon Rouhanifard with a stack of petitions signed by over 850 families - primarily from North Camden, East Camden and Cramer Hill - calling for more great public neighborhood schools. The families signed the petition because they believe every child in Camden deserves a great education, and believe that part of what will make that possible is for Mastery to be afforded the opportunity to create more great public neighborhood schools. Mastery parents and students will also publicly testify about their experiences this year at Mastery's two Camden schools - how their children are learning, safe and excited about school as well as how teachers communicate with parents and support and challenge their children.
Over 850 Camden families have joined Mastery’s BEST (“Building Excellent Schools Together”) campaign calling for more high quality public school options for all kids. These families represent a growing number of families from communities throughout Camden who are calling on the Superintendent and the School Board to move faster and more boldly to create more excellent public neighborhood schools, through the Renaissance initiative.
