So we've come to the end of this stage of the journey. We want to thank each of you for taking the time to carefully weigh the various options in parent partnerships, and for being willing to consider a newly forming program with East Valley School District. This has been a heartwrenching process and as a parent group, we do not take lightly the toll this has taken on many families. We feel it important to share with you that even within our parent group, there are some families that are moving forward to help pioneer a new program with East Valley, and some that are choosing to remain at Deer Park to be advocates for change and rebuilding. We recognize that every family will make their own choice, but our hope and prayer is that everyone will be able to do so without criticism or judgement from anyone.
From this point forward this blog will be utilized primarily as a means of communication for those families that are choosing to switch to East Valley. There will be lots of planning and new information, and we'll need feedback from the families who will be enrolled with East Valley. We look forward to being able to form a program on a firm foundation with a district that so highly values alternative education, and know that the families who have enrolled with East Valley so far, feel the same.
