On August 1, 2017, the Los Angeles County Office of Education held a hearing regarding the Soliel Academy Charter Petition. The Lynwood Teachers Association was represented along with members of the LUSD administration. LTA Treasurer Arthur Williams read for the record, from LTA’s official letter to LACOE, LTA’s Key Grounds 1, 3, and 4. LTA Secretary Rose Witucki also read for the record her statement from the perspective of an elementary educator. The following documents contain LTA’s official position in opposition to the Soliel Academy Charter Petition.
LTA is hosting Canvassing Events across multiple school sites in order to connect Lynwood schools with the community and have conversations with community members about our schools, programs, and services. LTA encourages all members to participate in these events. For more information on these canvassing events, please reach out to your local site rep (you can find yours here). To learn when your school’s canvassing is scheduled, please check the LTA Calendar, or read about all the sites’ dates in the Spring Newsletter here.
