Original email sent on January 30th:

Hi Superintendent Cordova and DPS Board,
A group of fourteen families at Lincoln Elementary have come together to start a strike fund. We already have verbal commitments totaling $8,000 that will go to Lincoln teachers if they strike. We expect this number to grow as we open it to more Lincoln families.

The teacher turnover rate at Lincoln has been low the last few years compared to the rest of DPS -- we want it to stay that way. We do not want the DCTA to take anything less than their current proposal. DPS needs to allocate the remaining $8M difference in proposals to teacher compensation by eliminating administrative bonuses ($4.4M last school year) and further cutting administrative positions to be inline with comparable school districts in Colorado.

We hope DPS does the right thing to avoid a strike. If you decide to stand by heavy administration and bonuses, then we will support the teachers by paying them during a strike.

Sincerely,
The Baldermann/Kenreichs, Schumachers, O'Dwyers, Whalens, Ballengers, O'Donnells, Hartmans, Goodwin/Wienges, Cummings, Williams, Huffs, Murphys, Namoffs, Goodmans

Hello Families that supported our Lincoln teachers during the strike last week. We raised $10,296!

This was a great show of support from our community. Let’s not forget about food that was donated, gift cards that were purchased for the paraprofessionals and the back massages that were arranged last Friday.

The donations will be distributed evenly based on teacher’s full-time or half-time status.

The strike lasted three days and teachers have been given the option from DPS to make up one day by working on a weekend. That leaves the teachers with two unpaid days. The full-time teachers will receive $476.67 from the fund, which will make them close to whole!

Thank you again for your donations.
