Proud Of Grand Terrace I have been arguing for this High school with the CJUSD Board for the past 2 years. I have been positive and upbeat the entire time. But at the March 14th board meeting this entire city was shown nothing but disdain and disrespect. Make no mistake this IS about Grand Terrace VS Colton but that was decided by the CJUSD Board. It is time to take the gloves off, this school board is accountable to the residents of this district and if they are going to ignore our wishes when we have done nothing but support them, then it is time for a change. The city has two school board representatives and we must show these two that if they are not going to represent the voters’ wishes then we must replace them, not tomorrow or next week when they will begin making decisions on the new high school but now so that this high school can represent the community which is going to make it tops in the state. Recall now, Kent Taylor and David Zamora, this is the action that needs to be taken to hold those individuals accountable who ignored the very people who elected them to show fair representation. Isn’t Ray Abril High School actually named after Ray Abril's father??? And when are we going to change the school district logo, because obliviously there is no teamwork and communication, how about jealousy, disrespect and egotism.

Recall Kent Taylor and David Zamora- YES! We also need to remind the school district that we have power. I am suggesting another Parent STRIKE like the one we did when the school board refused to settle with our teachers. If we keep our kids out of school during the week of state testing or tell all kids from Grand Terrace to refuse to take the test then they will hear our voice. State test scores do not affect our kids grades or ability to go to college.

If large numbers of kids do not take the test the district's scores will considered invalid by the state. It could also result in the state takeover of the district, whereby the school board members would lose there ability to make decisions and an appointed state administrator would have complete control.

The school board ignored us because they think we don't count but they need our kids test scores more than anything. This is a drastic action but would send an immediate and devastating message to the school board.

You may want to look into the way that Mr. Taylor has been getting "involved" at THMS. He needs to be recalled or at least voted out for many reasons.

Afraid I must remain anonymous-but know that many teachers at THMS support you and we thank you for your support!

Because I work for the district and at this time I am not sure that it is safe for me to leave my name. Yes really! You have seen how they are operating.
