Save Mid City School

Parents and Other Concerned Citizens:

Neighbors for Morris Jeff School has spent the last year fighting to get an excellent public elementary school opened in our neighborhood that reflects our diversity and has universal access. We have succeeded in getting the support of the School District. Mr. Paul Vallas, the Schools Superintendant, has committed to:

* Open an "incubator" school with early elementary grades, on a temporary location in the community, in the Fall of 2009 or 2010.

* Granting a community board full authority over the school, including selecting a principal, budget, and curriculum

* Building a $19 million facility for a new Morris Jeff School at a location approved by the community.

We need your input and support in order to make it happen. Please attend!
