Sat Nov 22: Save Reagan High Rally & March

Save Reagan High!

Save Reagan High!

I’m not sure this is posted anywhere online, but I wanted to help spread the word about this event. I’ve spoken to people who believe very strongly that closing Reagan High is not the answer. If you feel the same way, I hope you’ll come out for this event.

 

Save Reagan High Rally and March

Host: Stand Up Chapter of Reagan High School

Date: Saturday, November 22, 2008
Time: 4:30pm – 7:30pm

Texas Capitol
11th Street
Austin, TX

Reagan High School is facing possible closure by the state at the end
of this school year. If Reagan closes, this will be the second high
school closure in AISD, only a year after Johnston High School . On
Saturday, November 22nd from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Texas Capitol,
students will be the teachers as they inform state legislators,
teachers, pastors and other community leaders about what Reagan needs
to stay open. Following a gathering at the south steps of the State
Capitol, students will march with signs and banners to the Texas
Education Agency to call for the students of Reagan to be supported
and for Reagan High School to remain open.

The rally is hosted by the student-led Stand Up Chapter of Reagan High
School. Stand Up is composed of 100 current high school students who
work to improve education in Austin through student leadership
chapters at individual campuses.

Student organized this rally and march from the state capitol to the
TEA building to show northeast Austin ‘s passion and determination to
keep one of its community schools open for the next generation to
attend. The rally will showcase some of Reagan’s pride and honor with
performances from the Reagan band, poetry, and student speeches from
both current and past Reagan students. State Representatives Donna
Howard, Dawnna Dukes and Eddie Rodriguez will also be speaking about
how Austin can support the Reagan High School community.

This is an opportunity to speak out for the students of Reagan and to
support Austin schools!

For more information about the rally please contact: Tim Eubanks at
(512) 450-1880.

We are not just thinking about the current Reagan students, but the
next generation of Reagan Raiders. Will they have a school where they
can show pride in their community? For me this is about the future as
well as the present. Its time to take a stand!
