isn't it? To have a transparent school board and superintendent is key to gaining back the trust of the community after 12+ years. Enough micromanaging, personal agendas, embezzling, back room deals, egos, tyrants, dictators, vendettas, power, control, misuse of funds, and self perceived "commanders in chief". It has been horrible and this school district is the joke of Colorado. Let's change that "new school board and new superintendent". Let's do it for the kids.

If the board and superintendent spend the money on stuff like iPads for every student, security cameras, or re-keying every door in the district - NO WAY. But if it goes towards being competitive to keep the best teachers here, I could maybe be supportive. Losing Gary Stark and Tom Frasier because our salary schedule isn't close to being competitive while we spend money on these other items is a travesty. We were able to compete with Cherry Creek, Air Academy, and Denver School of Science and Technology in the fact that our top students would receive offers from the top universities in a large part because of these two teachers. Losing teachers who successfully prepared students for AP English and AP Physics courses, College Algebra, College Statistics and devoted as much time and energy towards our students because we are no where close to the compensation packages offered in the valley was a tremendous loss. If the Superintendent/Administration/ Board does nothing to address this and the best we are willing to offer our graduating seniors is mediocrity, then I would not support it. The mmoney needs to be spent to offer the best education for our students - nothing else.

I believe if a bond issue was fronted to a vote it may pass. The last election was confusing with a state school tax measure competing somehow with the local.
For a bit of spare change, I could easily support the needs of the School District.
But why are they commenting and the biasing their position on an external, town wide issue?...Lot 4?
We should all stick to what we ought to do, and do that to the best our nature and position allows.
