(Today is May 22, 2011. It is clear that our Board of Education is making no progress in the superintendent search. They did meet Friday in Executive Session but it had been 10 days since they had last met. For whatever reason, they are clearly at a stalemate.)
Attention SCORES parents, Fernbank parents, Bouie Theme School parents, Dunwoody parents, Sagamore parents, Evansdale Parents, Livsey Parents, Flat Rock Parents, McNair Cluster parents, Magnet parents, Avondale parents, etc (Please, please cut and paste this blog post and send it out to your various email lists.)
Do you know that there is a superintendent search on? Do you understand the implications of this search may be far greater and longer lasting than any impact redistricting might have on your child and their education?
I have spoken to several board members and they are hearing virtually nothing from citizens about the stalled superintendent search. Our silence is empowering those board members who refuse to move forward to remain entrenched. They received 1000s of emails about redistricting, they need to receive even more about getting a high qualify, proven leader for our school system.
You can use the link on the right side panel to email the board or here are their email addresses ready to be cut and paste into an email.
Let our board members know what we expect and what this system needs. Let them know that we care about the whole system, not just our tiny little slice. Because if this superintendent search doesn't turn out well, then even our good little pieces might turn bad.
