Its kind of a long story but I will try to give the cliff notes.
My girls go to a smaller catholic school (about 300 kids K-8). At enrollment for this year they decided (fairly early in my opinion) to close registration for the K class which left them with one class of 28 kids. Not happy about the class size but didnt have a K student so let it pass. Now this year our priest has decided to close enrollment for the 2nd grade class for next year and combine the classes to 1 class of 28. This made alot of people take notice. So we asked for a meeting with the priest and the principal to discuss the reasoning behind this decision and discuss the future of our school. The priest seems to be avoiding all of us. He wont answer our requests, emails, phone calls nothing. From the outside looking in (us concerned parents) it looks like the school is failing and they are downsizing for a reason (which is unbeknownst to us). Also a side note this decision was not brought before the school board. When we talked to them about it they didnt even know a decision had been made.
My problem lies in that the priest will NOT meet with us. He has this reputation from prior years also not meeting with parents. I have to admit my faith is rattled a bit by his lack of compassion for our feelings and our kids education.
My question is what recourse do I have available to me besides pulling my kids from this school?
I dont know what to do and I feel like my hands are tied. Can anyone please help?
