RedForEd Update to Parents and Staff/Comunicado Oficial Para Padres y Trabajadores

En resumen, el comunicado de Dr. Aguilera, Superintendente del Distrito Escolar de Gadsden, explica lo siguiente:

Como parte del movimiento #RedForEd existe una gran probabilidad que los maestros en Arizona formen parte de un paro laboral para exigir al gobierno del estado más fondos y mejores recursos para las escuelas públicas.

Hasta el momento, no sabemos exactamente cuándo y/o cuantos días pueda extenderse este posible paro laboral. Los representantes del movimiento de cada escuela perteneciente al distrito escolar de Gadsden nos han asegurado que nos avisaran con tiempo acerca de sus decisiones/acciones.

Si los maestros de nuestras escuelas deciden participar en el paro laboral, las escuelas del distrito permanecerán cerradas.

La seguridad de los estudiantes es nuestra prioridad. Por lo tanto, les comunicaremos todos los detalles en cuanto tengamos más información.

Usaremos todas nuestras plataformas de comunicación (Facebook, páginas oficiales de cada escuela, mensajes, etc.) para mantenerlos al tanto.

Gracias por su comprensión y apoyo.

FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) became a game changer in the STEM world more than 25 years ago. This event will be attended by people all over the globe and will be telecasted across many nations.

Based on the experience with the robotics and the successful launch of first robotics team in San Luis Middle school and the community; Mr. Gandhi was recognized and shortlisted for a rigorous interview by a panel of experts in the field. Some of the experts on the panel were Vince Wilczynski, the Deputy Dean of the Yale School of Engineering & Applied Science, and Dia Stolnitz, Director of Strategic Projects.

It is worth mentioning here that Mr. Gandhi was instrumental in inspiring the students to learn robotics and leading them to win the FIRST® Lego League County Championship in Yuma.
