I’ve attended multiple boundary change meetings, and I’ve attempted to maintain a diplomatic presence on this issue. But because of what I’ve witnessed recently, I feel I must inform the entire community with the facts of what is currently taking place at these meetings.
Throughout this process, the C1 parents have been using exaggerations, emotions and falsehoods in their attempt to sway the school board members. During the last two meetings, they changed their tactics to threatening, bullying and intimidating the board members. They are now threatening a lawsuit against the district if the board members don’t vote for C1. It’s really unbelievable the way these parents are behaving.
At the end of the day, we all want to do what is best for our children. I really hope that the parents threatening the lawsuit stop and think about what they are doing. It’s just completely unreasonable. I also implore anyone reading this to reach out to our school board members and let them know that they have our support and that we appreciate all of their hard work.
When you take emotions, falsehoods and threats out of the equation and you look at the numbers and facts, C4 is the only option that makes sense for the entire community. I strongly support our board members, and I applaud their ability to rise above the pressure and review the data in a logical manner.
