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.

The School Board Election That YOU missed!

A Special School Board Election was held on January 16, 2014 at Grieco Elementary School.

SEEK won!

Two sitting board members, all SEEK, and 5 others with 1 abstention voted to move the School Board Elections to November. Page 14 of 20. 14-F-73 APPROVAL - ESTABLISHING THE ELECTION OF MEMBERS OF THE ENGLEWOOD BOARD OF EDUCATION AS THE FIRST TUESDAY AFTER THE FIRST MONDAY IN NOVEMBER .

What does this mean?
  • Voters will not be able to vote on the budget
  • 3 sitting board members with terms expiring in April gave themselves nearly a year more on the board without input from the voters.
  • The President just voted himself another year in charge. 
  • According to Harley Ungar, a study conducted by David Popkin may have shown that many people will not vote in the school board election. She suggested that the supposed $45,000 saved is more important than voters.
  • Taxation without representation - Your taxes pay the tab and you no longer have a say
  • The campaign has begun. 
  • The School Board Election must remain in November for at least 4 years.
Tuesday, January 28 is going to be a very special day.
