SAN DIEGO (KGTV)--The parent-teacher association at Roosevelt Middle School is asking for community support to save the positions of two coaches who have received layoff notices from the school district due to budget cuts. 

The organization said its International Baccalaureate accreditation could be at risk if its physical and health Education teachers coaches Courneya and Harvey are let go by San Diego Unified School District. 

Eight schools in the district currently have IB designation, which is a program to develop actively engaged learners and global citizens, according the school district's website.  

The Roosevelt PTSA is asking parents to attend one of a series of upcoming townhall meetings:

  • Wed. April 26 with school board member Beiser
  • Thu. April 27 with school b oard member Barrera & McQuary
  • Mon. May 1 with board members Evans and Whitehurst-Payne and Superintendent Marten

Meetings are held from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at the San Diego Education Association office located at 10393 San Diego Mission Road, Suite 100, San Diego, CA 92108.
