Save the Creative Writing Program at CFPA:
In the fall of 2016, the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts (CFPA) will move from Woodbridge Senior High School to the new high school on Hoadly Road; it has recently been decided that the Creative Writing concentration will be discontinued, thus eliminating one of the very few arts-intensive creative writing programs for high schoolers in the entire country. This petition is to save the CFPA Creative Writing Program.
I have seen the tremendous impact this program has had on the students who have participated in it, and I have been a lucky recipient of the many benefits it provided me as a teacher. If you have seen the same in any way, or if you believe the arts should continue to have a secure place in public education, I urge you to sign. Thank you.
