Date: 29 May 2020

From: Kennedy High School Staff, Students, Families, and Community Partners

To: The WCCUSD School Board, Superintendent Duffy, and District Leadership

Regarding: The hiring process for the Principal of Kennedy High School

Whereas, school communities are most successful when they have input, autonomy, and power to shape the school's trajectory

And Whereas, inequities within the district must be addressed with coalitions of staff, students, families, and community partners

The signed supporters of this petition demand that the WCCUSD School Board, Superintendent Duffy, and District Leadership take the following steps to address the inequity of process in leadership changes at Kennedy High School:

1. Convene a community forum where district leaders explain the process for administration transition, and

2. Listen to input from stakeholders at the community forum and adjust priorities and decisions based on input

3. Publicly recognize lack of judgement and harmful decisions in regards to inequitable lack of input from Kennedy stakeholders, in order to begin restoring trust between stakeholders and district leaders

Note: This petition will be shared with the WCCUSD School Board, Superintendent Duffy, and District leadership once students, family members, community members and a majority of staff members agree to sign.
