The School Board meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 14 to discuss the Education Plan for next year has been moved to the High School at 4pm. According to Schools Music Director Dennis Farmer, the board will be considering recommendations to decrease the orchestra teacher position to five-sevenths and cutting the compter graphics teacher position completely. There are a few other computer classes at the high school, but not enough, and kids are often closed out of them year after year.
"My concerns are the woeful lack of computer offerings here already and the difficulty they will have hiring a quality orchestra person part time with no benefits," Farmer wrote in a widely circulated email.
According to concerned parent Theresa Mayer in another widely circulated email, they will also be looking at special ed services.
Both are urging concerned voters to attend the meeting if they can and/or contact the board members with their input:
Aida Merhemic , President
Anne Erickson, Vice President
Sean Creighton, Member
Richard Lapedes, Member
Angela Wright, Member
