How to get your Auction stuff

Letter to the Chancellor

In late March, the PA presidents and PA Community Affairs co-chairs sent a letter to our schools chancellor asking for her support for the proposed middle/high school project in the soon-to-be-vacated Beacon High School space. We also expressed concern about student data privacy (the inBloom project) and the high-stakes nature of standardized testing. Click here for the letter.
