Recent News Articles

Board members, district staff, parents and teachers are busy this week with the 9 site closure hearings happening Monday through Wednesday. I attended the Graham Hill site closure meeting tonight, at which 40 parents, staff, and community members presented a compelling case for keeping Graham Hill open.

Below are two recent articles on the school closure process:

Parents stand firm for school

School closure suggestions to be announced July 5

I am confused by the mention in the "Parents stand firm for school" article that some Emerson teachers are against the proposed merger of Rainier View into the Emerson building. I thought I heard at previous School Board meeting and public hearings that the idea was suggested by Raininer View and Emerson staff as an outcome preferable to having Emerson close and the kids dispersed.
