Tahoma School District : Save Russell Ridge School
This petition is now closed.
Russell Ridge is an ALE (Alternative Learning Experience) school in the Tahoma District that serves a diverse population of K-8 students. The mission of Russell Ridge is to meet the unique educational, social, and emotional needs of our diverse student population in a safe and nurturing environment to encourage students to develop an enthusiasm for life-long learning and pursue post-high school opportunities.
The Tahoma School District board members along with the superintendent have made the uninformed and flippant decision to close a school that has been successful for the past 20 years. Sign this petition to be part of a solution to keep this important school open
and allow Russell Ridge School to become a full-fledged member of this great district family.
To Tahoma School District:
It is my sincere hope that the Board and district administration will work with the community members to address whatever perceived deficiencies there might be. Objective minds can find solutions to the small challenges here. I sincerely hope the meetings that you plan to schedule can be a collaborative effort to understand and solve the perceived problems, to work together to be part of a solution to keep this important school open and allow Russell Ridge School to become a full-fledged member of this great district family.
Let us, together, provide the tools and experiences every student needs to create an individual, viable and valued path to lifelong personal success.
