Shoshoni residents, 'speak out' on school concerns
Jan 30, 2013 - Kathleen Moore, Shoshoni
I thank Jim Kennedy for his letter published Jan. 11 regarding School District 24 in Shoshoni. He brought issues that are a concern to many in the community.
The recent appointment of a new member to the school board, by the school board, with no input from the community is just one example of the turmoil within the school itself.
The people of Shoshoni have been asking for explanations and discussion of not just the appointment of a school board member but of staffing issues and concerns about the overall work environment.
School District 24 needs to have town and parental support as well as be open and accessible to the community.
As Mr. Kennedy suggested, the community needs to pursue a follow-up on these concerns and questions, not with just the school board decisions but with the leadership of the school board as well. Speak out.
