Parent and taxpayer response

JUST SAY WHEN ...TO ANYONE SAYING YOU HAVE NO SAY IN YOUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION. We are Citizens for Public School Education. We are Board Watchers. We want a Board of Education that follows the Law, because following the Law works for everyone. The purpose of this site is to help close the controversial Achievement Gap that is the subject in many educational arenas. Teachers are invaluable when dedicated individuals and are entrusted to encourage, nurture, and teach each child to achieve to the best of his/her individual abilities. Principals, Superintendents, Business Administrators, Support Staff, School Board Members, Attorneys and everyone else in the district must be dedicated to making certain that teachers have whatever they need in order to perform at their best. Teachers must be willing to go the extra mile like millions have done before them. This blog promotes an active, accurate & objective telling of history that includes ALL cultures and their literary, cultural and historical contributions to building America. We are Board Watchers.

We Would Like to See More of You

To the person redesigning the EPSD site. 

All teachers and staff should be encouraged/required to fill in their profiles.  Profiles should include a recent photo. I applaud those who have already done so. You know who you are. This is what is called true transparency. 

For those of you who have NOT done this:
Write your biography with certifications. Be proud of what  you have done with your career. It also gives us more confidence in you, your experience and abilities.

We have been told that you opted out of parent conferences. We are told that we communicate on the computer and that is enough. Filling out your profile actually gives us a face to connect with the name. Even when there are no apparent problems, it is best that we have an image of you. We hope that you feel the same. Sometimes we feel as if our children are being taught by strangers. It is scary enough to hear that strangers may be coming to the various offices once select staff has been outsourced.

Staff & Security: It also gives us familiar faces to trust when we drop off our children and grandchildren.

              How are the children?
