Thank you for your response and comments.
It is unfortunate when things like this distract us from the one goal that matters: student success. As public leaders we are all open to public scrutiny and commentary. Personally, I expect it and I grow from it. With new business and industry looking at Newton at the present, and with many unsung successes in more than 20 school buildings, it is my hope that we can redirect our eyes to the prize of student achievement. Situations like this do not promote educational and community prosperity or leadership that is helpful to Newton’s workforce development.
Dear Citizens, since this article appeared the volume of emails I have received is currently overwhelming, especially since many of your emails have legal documents attached to them from past and present employees. I answer to the voters and as the district board representative for Alcovy High let me first tell you that I will read all of your emails, the attachments to them, the documentation provided, and I will respond to you. I thank you for your interest in helping me to make schools work. In short, I hear you and I will communicate with you. I also ask you to join me at my May 10th public forum on Finance & Accountability based on my 4/25/12 GSBA training in Macon, Georgia. This event will take place at 7 p.m. in the Eastside High School auditorium, a venue closer to town at the request of parents who work outside of Newton. Please feel free to contact me with questions about the forum or about schools at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am proud to serve you.
District One Board Representative
