Message about Teacher Displacement

Dear Coe Families,

You have probably heard that the school district is requiring Coe to cut staff. You should also have received an email from Principal Turner outlining how she and the staff plan to address this situation. We are doing what we can to help and ask that you lend them your support as well.

This staff cut is a direct result of insufficient funding and planning. If you are upset—and many of you probably are—we encourage you to write or call the district and/or your state legislators.

Finally, if you would like to get more involved we are currently seeking delegates to represent our PTA at the 2018 WSPTA Legislative Assembly, where the WSPTA will set “the association’s focus and direction with regard to our legislative priorities for the coming two years.” If you think you would be interested in this or other legislative/advocacy work please write to us at

Thank you,

Jeremiah, Portia, Justin, and Sarah
2018-2019 Coe PTA Executive Board
