The attached letter was sent to Saba Educational Foundation Board on Thursday, August 14, 2014, and up to now we haven’t received a response from the school board.
I went to the school this morning and found out that the new teachers are not in school today, only the Care Coordinator and principal were present. There was also an open house scheduled today from 12:00 – 1:00 pm. Where is the transparency and communication that was promised from the school board? Where are all the new teachers that were supposed to be here?

Dear Board Members:
When The Saba Educational Foundation Board met with the parents on the 14th of July 2014, the board announced that all teaching positions with the exception of Dutch, including the new director and Care Coordinator’s positions, were filled for the upcoming school year 2014-2015.
Please CONFIRM that all positions including Dutch are filled.
The Board also announced in the same meeting that all teachers and the new director would be on island by Monday, the 11th of August 2014, guaranteed. Is this still the case that all TEACHERS, DIRECTOR and CARE COORDINATOR are on the island to begin teaching on Monday, August 18th, 2014???
The parents want to know the following information:
1. The names of the new teachers by subject, the name of the new director and the name of the new Care Coordinator.
2. Are the teachers and director familiar with the CXC program? We want this information by teacher.
3. When will the school have a parent – teacher open house?
Since the new school year is about to begin on Monday, August 18th, 2014 we want a response from The Board no later than Friday, August 15, 2014, at 3 pm.
On Behalf of the Saba Parents Association
