The Empire Strikes Back?
Though I have not been as active on the blog as I once was with posting, I look forward to each day of reading the daily comments! If there were such a category, I would nominate Cerebration for blog mistress of the year in DeKalb. What grew out of conversations on GDK has probably become one of the most talked about education blogs in the metro Atlanta area. Much credit should go to her and the many posters that make this THE place to go for discussion and insight regarding our school district. It is also great to see many employees also sharing perspectives and helping to educate the public on what they actually do.
I recall hearing that DCSS was considering starting a blog to ensure they get ahead with any messaging to the public. They have been woefully lacking in this area. The image (with apologies to George Lucas) is merely suggesting they are making an attempt to help address some misconceptions in the public domain. Go to this link which is accessible on the school district main page in the upper right hand corner, Budget Planning FY2011:
There is an FAQ link that is attempting to provide some clarity on some conversations seen on the blog. This is in addition to much of the information they have presented regarding remedies for addressing the budget. Hopefully this list will grow over time until they do get some type of blog up and running.
What do you think about the FAQ List? Is there other information you feel they should attempt to clarify for the public? We’ll leave specific budget discussions to the other blogs.
