This message is in response to recent community input about the staffing of teachers in our schools. As the superintendent, I am not able to comment on specific personnel related issues. It would be inappropriate for me to do so and I do not have the legal authority to violate the State law or Board policy. It would not only be illegal but it would also be unethical. The best option for returning teachers to classrooms would be to receive appropriate levels of funding from the state and/or if our school’s enrollment were to grow.
I would like to thank you for the ongoing communication and for sharing your thoughts. I wish our students, teachers, and parents all the best and appreciate the passion that is being shown for a teacher that is making a difference for our students.
