Support Senn Strategic Plan sign now

The most diverse high school in Chicago is under attack again by Alderman Mary Ann Smith. Four years ago, she undemocratically forced a Naval Academy inside Senn High School, despite a united school and community against the plan. http://www.substancenews.com/content/view/144/81/

The Naval academy continues occupying our school to this day. Only 5\% of the Naval Academy's students come from within our attendance area.

Now, the Alderman wants to take away the rest of our school and open 4 small schools inside of Senn. Despite outright lies by the Alderman, Senn serves 70\% of students in our attendance area.

The undemocratic Alderman had an opportunity to make Senn a better school by working with the Senn Strategic Planning Committee. In fact, she had a representative on the committee. The committee was open to the public and included teachers, parents, and community members of Senn. After a year and a half of work, the committee developed a plan to improve Senn. However, the Alderman secretly developed her own plan, which plagiarized language and stole ideas from the Senn Strategic Plan.

Using her stolen ideas, she wants to kick out the type of students attending our school and replace them with "higher class" students. The naval Academy would stay of course!

Senn is not the first school to be attacked. This is part of Mayor Daley's Renaissance 2010 plan. Many schools, like Austin and Englewood High Schools have already been shut down. More will be threatened. Help us stop gentrification and the destruction of public education in Chicago!

Our school serves blacks, latin@s and immigrants.

Our school has students from over 70 countries!

Alderman Smith wants to change that.

WE WILL NOT LET HER!

We the undersigned are against the Alderman's undemocratic plan to close Senn.

WE SUPPORT DEMOCRATIC DECISIONS AND SUPPORT GIVING THE SENN STRATEGIC PLAN A CHANCE!
