WHEREAS, the public interest in public education is best served by diversity of opinion in the governance of our School District.
AND WHEREAS, dissenting viewpoints must be respected rather than silenced in our democratic institutions.
AND WHEREAS, the heavy-handed action of the School District 61 Board in suspending elected Trustees Diane McNally and Rob Paynter is contrary to principles of democratic governance and a threat to our local democracy.
THEREFORE we, the undersigned, demand that the School District 61 Board of Trustees:
(1) Immediately rescind the resolution suspending elected Trustees Diane McNally and Rob Paynter.
(2) Take action to restore democratic governance in SD61 and restore trust between voters, students, teachers, parents and Trustees.
*Your name and email address will not be shared with School District 61. They will be used for the purpose of mobilizing community support for the restoration of democratic governance in SD61.
