Mix of optimism and reality as I start term as school board director Anonymous
It is amazing how a leader can impact the morale of a building or district. With a superintendent who is a micromanager, it is defeating to get up and go to work each day. I make every effort to remind myself that I work for the families and students first. Some days that keeps me going and other days I still feel pessimistic about my current district and the faltering public school system. Anonymous
We have new leadership in our school district. That has motivated me to be more positive and optimistic. Anonymous

So many initiatives, requirements and meetings (central office) that take my focus off of the joy of beginning a new school year): Anonymous
POOR DECISION MAKING FROM TOP TO BOTTOM. Anonymous
Children and parents ill-prepared for school. Intolerant of 4 and 5 year-olds learning to move through a huge building in the company of 24 others. Alleged “bullying “ for bumping one another. Excitement seen as aggression. Very sad. Anonymous
I retired and am much happier! Anonymous
Very positive start to the year. Great families and a great staff. There could always be improvement but we are working on them. Anonymous
