We are still battling the initiative he has Proposed, lets not loose momentum and don't forget to come to the
Feb 11 meeting and find out about whAt charter school is all about.


We need to save our school and teachers
Lets get involved and not let this man ruin the school

Thank you

Response to Laila: The Portables are coming!! This will ruin our school!!

Dear Parents and Teachers,
In attempt to get Laila to understand what is at stake in the vote for conversion of our K8, please remove yourself from your prejudices for moment. Turn your mirror into a window so you can see parents all over South Florida, those without the resources we have in Key Biscayne, looking at us; seeking intelligent leadership to show good manners, vision, clarity and to offer an alternative to eliminate overcrowding, replacing old unsafe buildings for our kids safety, in exchange for new expanded schools, with the most advanced security for their neighborhood.

This is much more important than any PTA or title. I learned that the PTA's represents the status quo; an arm of the School District and its manipulated efforts to get loving parents to subsidize purchasing paper and pencils, surge protectors and art supplies, as MDPS continues to mismanage the operating budget in every district run school countywide. This policy is paradigm and is taken as kindness for weakness approach to Parents. Parents will continue to approve bonds for schools on Election Day and which raises everyone's school taxes to boot, while we are feeling benevolent.

Meanwhile PTA Executive Boards will fail to apply the very primary purpose of the PTA to bring families together to educate our youth as Clause D clearly states in the KBCS-PTA bylaws: (verbatim)


D. "To bring closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the education of our children and youth."

What can be the most perfect, most pure way to finally accomplish this Central Purpose of the PTA? We believe its obvious; a charter application that mandates a Governing Board of Parents acting as guardians, of the school’s budget to create surpluses, available for pay increases to our teachers as professionals not as assembly line workers. Plus to furnish them all the advanced teaching tools to better educate our children and our youth going forward. Does our proposal effectively

Bring “The Home” to “The School” ….I mean, literally?

Still Doubt? Here are the ABC's or 1-2-3:

1A. How can a new school building for 1800 which invites and welcomes 400 more students not buses them off the key, diminish our 'A' school?

2B. How long can we remain an 'A' school at the present rate of 3-4% overcrowding?

3C. How can we remain an 'A' school if the students with highest GPA and FCAT scores in (6) sixth thru (8) eighth grade leave for the Cambridge Program at MAST@Virginia Key?

As to my resignation: (Please read the official letter on this blog.)

Mrs. Sharon Watson President of MDPTA clearly states, “At no time did the PTA discuss or vote on taking a position on this issue” in article in the Islander News Thursday February 07thShe recognizes the fact Hector and I, submitted our Trigger Letter to Mrs. Tarafa as parents only*; ALL THE LEGAL DOCUMENTS addressed to the school board SINCE OCTOBER 4TH 2012 STATE THE SAME FACT. We were very well advised that using the PTA Executive Board's support was a liability for our effort. Wednesday night was a perfect example why> Most executive board members to not have the character or resolve to handle the intimidation from The District or its misinformation campaign and certainly cannot handle the mistreatment of their kids like my daughter has been treated.<

I stated Wednesday night this motion to rescind my election, was illegal vote contrary to the Bylaws and as chair of special meetings as president as per these bylaws, the motion had failed because nothing in the bylaws allows for a removal of any officer of the KBCS-PTA. This is why I refused to resign. Wednesday night was underhanded approach by FLPTA and MDPTA to defeat the YES vote and/or another trumped up reason for all the Laila’s out there to call for my resignation to imply that “Manuel Camb√≥ is bad he will ruin the school so vote No! You Decided:

89-3 to rescind my election as President for misusing my title in conflict of interest in support of Yes Vote while MD-PTA uses its title to host a Parent Forum on February the 11th in the middle school cafeteria slanted towards the No Vote. 

Get it? Please come. Ask yourself the A, B or C questions mentioned above and then come to Feb 20th Vote YES Parent Forum with Harold Maready School Adminstrator for McKeels Academies all Conversion-to-charter schools in Polk County, Florida.

 Expect Success. O'

(*Please Note: We identified ourselves as contact info with our elected titles and cell numbers on postcard in fine print at the bottom. It was reprinted for record upon receipt of the cease + desist order without titles. If you see through all of this shenanigans call me to hand out more postcards I have a 500 hundred more.
