JY meeting held 5/5/08

Fellow alumni,



Please pass this along to everyone that received this email. I am sending this out to set the record straight. I was in attendance at the meeting last night because of concern for removal of the lion from the front of the school. However upon getting there I found that this is not the case. I will attempt to run down everything that was discussed at the meeting as best I can. When asked if the lion will be removed the answer from both the principal and the executive regional principal was no. However there are many problems at Jack Yates High school. This being said we as alumni need to come together and support our school like others support theirs and try and find solutions to these problems. The biggest problem I saw is budget and basically what was stated is that JY is in trouble with this situation. They will be making cuts for the next school year to compensate for the budget problems. I have one question to ask why is that JY cannot have the support that these other schools have? We all had our glory days there and we need to keep this school alive in order to make those days available for future generations. Yes we have some children now a days that just aren't interested in school but we can change that. JY is a school of communication and yet the communication between faculty, staff, administrators, parents, alumni, and community has failed. I challenge all classes to take the step to make JY what it used to be and not let it become the school
