- this notice at every school's webpage:
Good to know. In reference to The Source it would also be good to know what the district is going to ask teachers for in their new contracts. They currently only have to use The Source twice a quarter which is just not enough. If parents want to keep up with their student's work, then The Source has to be used more.
- that on the Schools page at the SPS website that all the K-8s are put together (even Alternatives) but under Alternatives only AS#1 and Thorton Creek are there (along with the smaller, less well-known schools like South Lake and SBOC). Why would that be? Nova isn't listed either under Alternatives. I'm fine with putting all the K-8s together so you can see them all at a glance but why not put an asterisk for those that are alternative? Why not list all the alternative schools under Alternative?
- Just like Tribbles or mushrooms, there are signs popping up at schools all around the district, touting the work done there under BTA II. Complete with all the School Board members and the Superintendent, it's a little PR to try to get people to say, "Hey, we have to vote for that BTA levy, look at what they did at our neighborhood school." Sure, it's a good PR thing to do but it sad to think how much of that money got misused at places like Denny.
