Hi CSBA, I'm writing to ask for your help distributing this request for participation in a one-question poll related to our public school buildings. >>>>>>>> After success working with administration for a changing table to be installed in Baldwin School's visitor's bathroom (see end note), I am bringing my advocacy for family accommodations in school bathrooms to the district level. Family engagement is part of learning, and a welcoming environment for families and other members of the public means ensuring minimum standards for our facilities. A baby changing table and a step stool in a bathroom on site so siblings and youngest students can wash hands independently is an important first step. I welcome ideas and feedback. Please help by completing this anonymous one-question poll: https://doodle.com/poll/tge32axebnutu6ti "Do you think the district should ensure that there is a safe changing table, stepstool, i.e. a family friendly bathroom in every school?" There are 4 response choices. I testified about this need at last Thursday's Building and Grounds Subcommittee Meeting. Agenda Item #2, Family Accommodations in Bathrooms, is 1:16-1:28. https://www.dropbox.com/s/pkvt4tkrlyboz6t/B%26G%20SubCommittee%2012-7-17.MP3 You might like to listen to what was said during this time to know the official status of this issue. I can supply background on my efforts to date by request. One complaint was that I was the only parent who had ever raised this issue. I argue that the need is self-evident and that disparity across the district on this point can be remedied at relatively low cost. Per an email reply to me after I followed up after the meeting, Chair of Subcommittee School Committee member Manikka Bowman states: "The staff will come back with cost recommendations for this at our next meeting which hasn't been scheduled yet. We will discuss this in the context of our overall facilities needs and make a decision regarding this based on priority of needs and direct impact to CPS students. I'll let you know when the next meeting is scheduled." Please share this poll with other Cambridge voters so there is data for these decision-makers. Robin Chen Parent, Baldwin and MLKJr schools, formerly Graham&Parks and Peabody Schools 978-809-2714 PS At http://pub.lucidpress.com/baldwin_10_30_2017/ is Baldwin Broadside from October, edited by the school's Family Liaison, where, front page, bottom, with picture, it reads: "Thank you to Special Start parent Robin Chen! Robin advocated for a changing table at the Baldwin. Last week the facilities department came and installed a changing table in the Baldwin visitor's bathroom on the first floor! Our school community owes you a debt of gratitude for your steadfast dedication to help make this a priority. Robin not only rallied the School Committee and the Chief Operating Officer's office for installation at the Baldwin School, but for all CPSbuildings. The Cambridge Public School families thank you for your efforts to improve our schools!"
