On their Facebook site the SCS made the following announcement:
Please be informed that the parent meeting with the VO-Raad has been rescheduled. Instead of Wednesday 12:00 – 13:00, the VO-Raad will meet you on TUESDAY from 13:00 – 15:00.
The SCS has published on their Facebook site a letter from the Dutch Secondary Education Council (VO-Raad) to the parents of the SCS. In this letter the indicate that they have been asked to advise and support the Saba Comprehensive School. The letter did not indicate who had requested their support.
The Secondary Education Council is a federation of boards of secondary schools. In their mission statement, they mention that they intend to look after the interests of secondary schools. They organize activities for members of the board and directors of schools with the objective to improve the quality of education.
Two representatives from the VO-Raad will visit Saba from August 26-28. On Wednesday, August 27, they have reserved one hour between 12 am and 1 pm to meet with the parents. In their letter to the parents they announced that they want to “listen to your stories about the school and to discuss your challenges for the future.”
The two representatives that will visit Saba are Mr. Sjoerd Slagter, former President of the VO-Raad , and Mr. Wim Littooij, chairman of the school board of the CVO schools in Rotterdam.
The CVO school board is one of the bigger ones in The Netherlands. Their schools serve some 20,000 students and they have some 2300 employees. The board governs schools at 40 locations in the Rotterdam area. One may observe, that there is a huge difference in scale between the CVO schools and the SCS.
