Let Your Voices Be Heard: Kimberly Risher

Tuesday, September 21st, 2021- I think we can all agree that both students and parents can relate to the feeling of being ‘stretched thin.’ This message was shared by Utica Academy of Science Charter School parent, Kimberly Risher, as she shares her story and challenges with Durham School Services, during Utica Academy of Science Charter School’s press conference held on September 21st.

The delays caused by Durham School Services have caused major disruptions within family schedules. Families like to plan ahead and with the sporadic drop-off times, it has caused students and families to miss out on after school activities, sporting events, and ultimately impacting the future of the students.

We invite you to join us throughout the week as we continue to share videos in this 8-part series,’Let Your Voices Be Heard,’ where you will hear stories from concerned parents and students who share their experiences thus far with Durham School Services.

Tune in tomorrow as we share the fifth video in this 8-part series, ‘Let Your Voices Be Heard.’
