Agreed with everything here save for the inference that we are not blessed by the presence of Superintendent David Jeck.
I concur: Smaller more local facilities are best, doubly so when they pursue first-rate excellence.
Commended to your attention: The local Excellence in Education committee is a fine forum for public involvement, but you are correct that the more citizens have access to school leaders the better. Further, I know they agree and hope it happens.
Attended this week the E-i-E awards for teachers where they handed a teacher from each school a $500 check along with recognition for achieving excellence. Deeds, not just words.
Bravo to you for writing and getting involved. Schools are not a burden. They are an opportunity to put forth our very best efforts in ways that directly and demonstrably improve our community.
