It is through an open dialogue that we will gain insight into the most significant challenges facing our school district today.
The newspaper's education reporter, Rachel Heaton, in a short time, has prompted the discussion of several relevant topics in local education. Bringing about change in our schools will take a fearless investigation into what's plaguing them, not only by our local media, but also by our Board of Education and community. District celebration points are appreciated, but to move forward we need to dig deeper, uncovering some of the more difficult obstacles we face. We still haven't progressed from an "average" school district rating to a "good" or "excellent" rating in recent years.
Change is in order.
School board candidates will be circulating their petitions over the next few months, gathering signatures to allow them to run in November's election. Please take the time to sign these petitions. So much of our local representation has gone uncontested in the past several years. Having a choice is something we as a community should encourage. You may all decide come November which candidates are worthy of your vote based upon their positions, but for now, let's provide for choice.
