I have now written three e-mails to the Board today.
The first one I sent was about the issue of the school calendar, namely October 9th. That I have asked - three times via three methods - and there is no reply tells me something is wrong. There is not really a good reason to not have the calendar nailed down by now.
The second e-mail was about FERPA and the ability to opt out of releasing data on your student while still allowing your student to be in the yearbook, newsletter, etc. That this issue is ALSO not nailed down is wrong.
The last e-mail was something that many of you have been plaintively asking for months - where are the SBAC scores? For all the issues with giving them, parents got the promise of fast results that could be used to help their kids. Crickets.
From Annoyed's comment:
Why doesn't the district live up to its own promises and why doesn't
anyone hold them to them (and that goes not just for this but for many
Yes, those are excellent questions and why we need a new majority on the Board who WILL hold the staff to their promises.
Here's how I ended my last e-mail to the Board:
Directors, you are responsible for oversight on issues like this. Why
is the district making promises/justifications that they cannot keep?
This is my third e-mail today and what is the underlying issue? Communication and transparency in communication.
I don't know how the Board continues to look the other way.
