Randell Day and the Burnsville Fine Arts Program sign now

Special Attention to: Ben Kanninen, Gerry Ackerman, Carter Christie, Sue Grissem

We the undersigned, hereby submit this petition in support of the Theatre/Fine Arts Director since 1995, Randell Day and the Burnsville High School Fine Arts program.

We are not satisfied with the way the Fine Arts Program at Burnsville High School is being handled. More importantly, we are very upset with the level of regard that Randell Day appears to be held at by the District and the Board. Simply put, Randell Day is an irreplaceable mentor.

Every person listed on this petition has been touched in some way by Randell Day. Whether participating in his productions, attending his classes, accepting his guidance or simply receiving his friendship - all of us would not be the people we are today without him. His constant support for the talents of students and is everlasting love of the Arts is a valuable asset to Burnsville High School. Randell Day is not just an amazing person; he is one of the most knowledgeable teachers we have ever met. He is the creative and technical director for every presentation at Burnsville High School. He is a teacher of acting, stagecraft and construction. Most importantly he has given an open mind and a helping hand to thousands of students. Randell works countless hours of overtime and makes personal contributions to the school and the community that go unnoticed. We are aware of all of Randells efforts and appreciate every one of them. Now you are aware as well.

We hereby call upon School District 191 Administrative Employees and the Burnsville School Board Members to take this petition and resolution as a formal complaint on your actions thus far and demand that it be immediately taken into consideration. It is your responsibility, in times of budget cuts, to remain impartial and unbiased. We expect that the same effort you extend to other school programs like athletics, are extended to the Fine Arts. We request that you continue to employ and support Randell Day in his current position as Theatre/Fine Arts Director at Burnsville High School. Furthermore, we ask that you continue to serve the students and the community of Burnsville as proponents of the Fine Arts Program. We will not settle for the termination of Randell Day or any budget cuts made solely to the Fine Arts Programs while leaving other curricular programs untouched.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Randell Day's Theatre program was instrumental in my success in high school both socially and academically. The arts are a great way for students to express themselves please do not deny that opportunity for future students

    The Fine Arts Program was definitely one of the highlights of my three years at BHS... I have so many amazing memories from being involved with that program and can't imagine what it would have been like without that opportunity!

    Over the last decade, the fine arts programs at BHS have consistently been subject to budget reductions while other school programs, especially athletics, have remained untouched. Major budgets cuts of this kind are unfair unless they are applied, proport

    To take away funding for the arts at Burnsville would be the most grevious thing the board could do. My experience with BHS theatre and with Randy Day can't be expressed in any words I could put on this petition. Participating in the arts program at Burns

    Fine Arts programs and those that run them are desparately needed in today's schools. Please consider what you would be depriving BHS's young people of before making this decision.

    I no longer live in the Burnsville School District, but I grew up there. Many of my friends go to BHS. I know that theatre and the fine arts are important to them. I live for theatre as many of my friends do. I don't know what some of my friends would do

    Citizens will never have enough tax breaks to fund their children's future. Our cummunities must accept the responsibility for a better tomorrow.

    Arts are an excellent way for kids to share experiences they would not normally recieve in High School. I am specifically committed to having a stable band program, and have benefitted firsthand from the support, courage, and leadership of the teachers as
