The K-8 school has been under scrutiny for under performance and is now being considered for state receivership.
The group wanted to convince Commissioner Mitchell Chester to give new superintendent, Sergio Paez, a chance to turn things around.
“I feel that Dr. Paez has only been on the job for a few months. He’s willing to look outside the box. I’m hoping Commissioner Chester heard that and is willing to give us another year,” said Principal Aliza Pluta.
Some teachers are worried if the school is designated “Level 5” and the state takes over, they will lose their jobs.
But Pluta says some progress has been made in attendance to the school since the start of this academic year.
