SteamboatJoe 6 years, 6 months ago on New Interim Superintendent Smyser vows to build up trust

Concerning Troeger's quote about fear and lesson planning...

How does lesson planning change when you are supposedly "afraid" to stand up to a BOE? Someone please give me an example of how a teacher might let our current board dictate how curriculum is delivered. That one blows me away. What was the purpose of these bizarre comments by Troeger and Jerry?

Good Luck Sandra. You seem to have a good perspective.

Naturally, an important issue should be discussed by phone. HOWEVER, id04sp, a form on a website to contact the organization is a standard website function ignored on this site. NOT EVERYTHING is an emergency.

Take a look at how easy it is to see pictures of sex offenders on the city police site. It is extremely user friendly. PDFs are not user friendly. I don't care about bandwidth. People who use dial up should not be the main concern in 2007. Get with the program.

A true test of Wall's commitment would be to update the site in a timely fashion based on the community response. You market the item, you listen to the community feedback. We shall see.

Very 2002 looking. No way to bookmark a specific page, and no way to email or contact via the site. How about a bio or update from the Sheriff? Sex offenders can only be seen via PDF? what's up with that, why not post photos. Good to see they are trying though.

No it is not open enrollment. You have to apply to the school of choice if you are out of district. They let you in if they have room. Why are we not one school system anyway? That would be more cost effective. Three districts makes no sense.

I wish I seen the post by the soul saving Matthew. Must have had a bad morning, maybe he will be back to defend his stance.

Good Luck to the new interim super. Hopefully you can get a few things done for our district before the new search begins.
