Sancho makes an excellent point.... Instead of hiding behind your keyboards - be a part of the solution to make your city a better place. Volunteer your time to help champion a better solution. The offer has been extended, so use all this energy you place into complaining into being a force for positive change. It amazes me that every time the offer is extended to volunteer to be a part of this process the same posters that are so adamant that they have the right solution and everyone else is wrong quickly decline the offer to help with change...... Again I say, stop hiding behind your keyboards - let your names be known and affect the change you want in this city to make it better.........
This was what I heard from a district employee - looking at the website and news releases it seems they are tied together as a single initiative solely for the purposes of the new high school. Does someone have more information on this????? Am I correct in belieiving the bond and levy are seperate initiatives????
Please do not confuse the Tax Levy with the Bond vote. The Levy is designed for school security initiatives, like cameras and door lock systems. It is also going to be used to help with technology initiatives and upgrades. Whether you support the bond for the new high school or not, I would hope everyone would be supportive of tighter building security for our children and more technology opportunities for them. The levy should be a "no-brainer"......
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LEVY IS NOT THE SAME AS THE BOND!!!! The Tax Levy is designed for technology and building security. This has nothing to do with the Bond for the school initiative. After the recent school shooting, I see this Levy as VERY important for this community.
The answer is yes. Each student must complete exactly the same core standards prescribed by DESE. Each academy just delivers the material in different ways. The S&T kids would have Algebra problems worded in projects related to S&T and EA would have the same concepts taught in projects related to EA.
Come on, this is funny!!!!
One School to Rule Them All. One School to Find Them. One School to Bring Them All and In The Darkness Bind Them
Very glad there is one intelligent voice amongst the madness......... Many people can disassociate themselves what what is really the objectives here just because they feel "inconvenienced"... Loose a child or another loved one, then see if they would still use words like "hassle"......
JCLifer - seriously????? You would rather turn down 20 million dollars that could help our students and teachers just because you see a conspiracy? The RTTT grant was designed to help foster innovation and to get schools trying new ways to engage and educate the kids.... The 20 million grant will help fund a 1-to-1 computer intiatives for our students 6th-12th, with a TON of tech in the elementaries- also fund millions for teacher professional development... You do realize the vast majority of school funds already come from federal initiatives, correct????
