As we talked about earlier, parents will win in court because not only did the District deny the parents’ petitions based on illegal verification tactics and a fraudulent “rescission” campaign, but they also denied the parents, yet again, after agreeing that the parents were well over 50%.
On the morning of March 6th, parents met with District Superintendent Darren Brawley to review their resubmission. After the parents reviewed all of the documents, the Superintendent agreed: the parents were clearly over 50%. Yet only 3 weeks later, the District denied those same petitions claiming that they were under the 50% line.
It is deceitful for a representative of the District to confirm that parents are over 50% only to create new categories to deny parents. While parents have acted in good faith, the District was eagerly searching for ways to drive parents under 50%. Unfortunately, at the March 28th meeting, the District’s intents were laid out very clear: use new and old reason to drag parents under 50% and while their math may have been questionable, the parents were not surprised by the District’s tactics.
