First Bell: School board chats continue this week; task force member dissents from plan to close Wakarusa Valley; Pat Grzenda retiring after 34 years in pool, gyms

I never saw the letter of dissent on the website! I thought all communications were available? What else are we not seeing? Are they talking about my school? Did they respond to the letter? Was this the only one? I can't say that I had trust before but pay heed the ides of March are upon us and our elementary schools are Ceasar!

Lawrence school board sets formal process to consider closing Wakarusa Valley School with discussion on March 14, public hearing on March 28

Wakarusa won't be enough, will I lose my school too? Read the the documents they are public! If the school board could not make the decision why are board members on the task force? Or should I say steering the task force to meet their personal objective.
