There are many methods to do that one of them is
School Accreditation Overview
Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools. Accreditation engages the entire school community in a continuous process of self-evaluation, reflection, and improvement. It invites external scrutiny and welcomes the constructive feedback of peers. It demands rigor, is based in data, and approaches documentation of results with discipline. Accreditation is about making the quest for excellence a habit; it's about being the best a school can be on behalf of the students it serves.

One problem is a lack of funding. At least as far back as the passage of the education reform act in the early 90's, Saugus has consistently been shortchanged in its share of the chapter 70 funds earmarked for public education in the commonwealth. Our representative, Donald Wong, has done nothing positive to remedy this deplorable situation. Maybe it's about time to replace him with someone who is willing to put forth the effort required to improve the educational climate caused by this inequity.

The amount of money via the array of taxes imposed on the town of Saugus and then sent to the state house far exceeds the amount returned to the town by way of grants, chapters whatever, etc. As absurd as it may sound, Saugus would be better served if it instead, opted to become the 51st state. Don't believe it? Add up all the business and individual income taxes, sales taxes, hotel taxes, meal taxes and on and on and come up with a different conclusion if you can. "Fair distribution" is right, with Wong leading the charge, the only wallet in town that gets fatter is his own.

What about the wallet of the chairman of the planning board?

The voters will soon have an opportunity to begin a process allowing Saugus to receive a more equitable fair share of state funds a reality. Our representative Donald Wong has done little, if anything, to address this problem. It's long past time to replace him with someone who'll act on our behalf. At approximately 9 PM on November 8 we'll have the answer to that question.

Don't fret. The few voters who bothered to show up at the polling venues, not on the suggested original date June 29 but instead on June 20, incidently the next to last day of school some say in order to accommodate the parents, voted to fund the critically necessary junior high school and sports stadium in order to propel us into the 21st century along with, the costs of these projects and pay those who will be fortunate enough to be chosen to erect them. The increase necessary in our tax rate which will allow Saugus to rival those of our neighboring more wealthy communities is certain to bring smiles of joy to those, especially limited income seniors when they receive the bills sent out to property owners on a regular basis.

What about teaching them how to construct coherent sentences? Shouldn't your sentence read "condoms ON bananas" not " condoms IN bananas"?

Many Saugus citizens are puzzled as to why Winthrop's recently completed junior/ senior high school combo only cost 80 million dollars to build while Saugus' town hall estimates that the newly proposed junior/senior high school complex to be built in Saugus will cost taxpayers 168 million dollars.

Saugus is in need of a new high school period. The Belmonte School has been more than adequate in housing grades 7and 8. As for the need to construct a new stadium, Stackpole Field, Anna Parker field, the baseball field, soccer field and running track adjacent to the Belmonte, and the field adjacent to the high school are more than adequate to accommodate a diversity of outdoor sporting events. Now that the election results have been tallied there's no need for you to be concerned. The deed, along with the creation of these other unecessary projects, is as good as done. Best wishes to all who expect to profit financially from the construction of this complex.$168 million is quite a tidy sum. Make certain that your take satisfies your particular needs.

Between the "adjusted" assessed values of their properties and the increases in the property tax rate, even more new schools will have to be built to accommodate the young couples who'll be moving here with their children. Fixed income seniors will be forced to sell their homes to these young folk who, for the most part, enjoy much better health than these old geezers which naturally renders them capable of earning enough money to pay the increased taxes necessary to fund their children's education. As for the old folks who don't have that luxury, sayonara, there's a new order in town and if you're incapable of working at a well paying job because of poor health and infirmity, get over it, leave and don't let the door hit you on the way out.

They can also overdose on any number of the medications that they take to eliminate any and all issues related to old age. Your predecessors, the brown shirts, in the 30's and 40's in Germany would agree. Too bad for you that you weren't around then to bolster their ranks. Sounds, like them, you're more than eager to initiate another "Final Solution". Even Hitler had a soft spot for his pet dog. You've apparently managed to exceed even his capacity for hatred.

Or maybe you can toss them a few crumbs from your cut of the $168,000,000 to tide them over in their remaining years.

That's what Custer tried to explain to native Americans. Sadly for him and his troopers, none of the tribes believed what he said was true. Sadly for Saugus, those who voted to approve a new junior high school and stadium weren't quite that savvy. Even much more sadly, most voters didn't even bother to render one opinion or another at the polls on Election Day.

Prior to the passage of the BIRMINGHAM- Roosevelt education "reform" laws back in the 90's, applicants for positions in the public schools of Massachusetts were interviewed in open sessions by ELECTED school board members who selected the candidates from among the group of applicants that they felt would best fulfill the duties of the particular position to be filled. It was from this list of qualified men and women that the superintendent would choose that individual who the school superintendent would select the person who he or she felt would best be suited to accommodate the needs of the children in that district. After the so-called reform laws was passed, the elected school boards were exempted from this selection process and the final say for any and all selections, with few exceptions, became the exclusive right of the district's school superintendent. No longer would the taxpayers be allowed to compare the qualities of the chosen candidate with those who weren't chosen. How many of the best candidates were bypassed by the individual making the ultimate choice, we'll never know. Is this the best way to choose those who we pay to enrich our children's lives? Most think not.
