Impact Research Sources
CUE is a concerned group of citizens who have been guided by an education
financial consultant and completed extensive research to determine ALL
the impacts a Lovejoy secondary school will have on our communities, residents
Each of these areas has research that can be backed up by
Lovejoy studies and fact-finding with governing authorities.
If Lovejoy builds their own secondary schools the changes
to our communities will be irreversible. Whether you have children or
not, your taxes, lifestyle, and property values will be affected by this
The majority of our school board and administration are
biased for separation and have, we believe, failed to make a sound financial
and academic case for building secondary schools in Lovejoy. Their presentation
of information to the public has not been objective information and has
many omissions, especially in the area of community impact.
There are no signs to mark where the proposed high school
and middle schools will be.
Please help us get all the facts to our communities. Our
board and administration have the responsibility to our citizens to be
forthcoming with ALL information.
consolidation of LovejoyISD & AllenISD, we have a proven
Blue Ribbon high school with excellent academic, athletic, arts and
extracurricular programs. Our communities, in a consolidated district,
have the unique opportunity to create a satellite school that could serve
as a technology or arts center. Our communities' country lifestyle
can be preserved.
can request the documents used for this research by filing an Open Records
Act at the Lovejoy administration building. (Genesis Partnership Report;
the Lovejoy (SangerISD) budget; bond amortization schedule; & Moak
& Casey report.)
With consolidation, we are not losing Lovejoy schools,
they will still be here with the same teachers and neighbors. The only
thing that changes is the district we are in. Allen has proven it can
do a great job at BOTH elementary AND secondary. Why would we want to
risk the financial and academic viability of our school district?
