Original post made by Anett Gyurak, Rengstorff Park, on Oct 20, 2013

If the vote goes through, Community Gatepath promises to enroll 30% low income residents (as opposed to the current 7%) -- an enrollment approach that the company has no expertise or track record in.

Completely agree and am very concerned by these proposed changes, along with all of the other CCLC parents I've spoken to. I plan on attending the Tues council meeting as well on Tuesday. Thank you for taking the time to post this so others understand the implications as well.
