“This is about believing that there needs to be a change in the direction of District 150, and so as an organization we are committed to not just this election, but to the future.”
The school board would have to appoint someone to fill the remaining district 3 term if Petelle is unseated. Change 150 is also working with community groups to flesh out more priorities they have for the district. The group was formed following public concern over the district’s handling of alleged cheating at Charter Oak Primary school. But Sea says the group is focused on changing both the leadership and the culture for the entire district.
