Our Teachers Are Saved!

A reorganization to eliminate an over-formula teacher at Birney was originally slated for October 31st, but Ms. Amanda and the Birney community pulled together to figure out a better transition for our students, and now it looks like we'll have Ms. Thompson through the end of the 2013-2014 school year.

Thanks to Ms. Amanda, FOABE, the SD USD, and the letters, petitions, and the presence of Birney families at community meetings for keeping our school community intact for the year. If you wrote the Board of Education to ask for their help in saving Ms. Thompson, please send a note thanking them for preserving Birney's community: Superintendent Marten and SD USD President John Lee Evans, Vice President Kevin Beiser, member Scott Barnett, member Richard Barrera, and member Marne Foster.
