Isn’t it time balance returned to the Jeffco school board? Don’t we need a couple of board members willing to ask what needs to happen to improve student achievement? I think yes, and yes, so I am supporting Matt Van Gieson and Erica Shields for Jeffco School Board. These two candidates will bring balanced discussions to the Jeffco School Board in a respectful manner.
I have been unhappy with the current board’s decision to move sixth graders to middle school with minimal community engagement. I am not comfortable with the $50 million dollar price tag to make this happen. I have read that there are thousands of empty classroom seats in Jeffco. I think more creative problem solving needs to be discussed before spending $50 million to add an additional 5,000 classroom seats. Some of my friends didn’t even know it was happening and are now looking for alternatives for their children.
I read that the district does not have the money to address low student achievement numbers, so wouldn’t the $50 million make a larger impact if allocated to the classrooms? It is these questions that the current board ignores. Please vote for Matt Van Gieson and Erica Shields to the Jeffco School Board.
