“Unit 4 should spend money on instruction”

Great letter to the editor this morning:


re: http://www.news-gazette.com/opinion/letters-editor/2014-05-30/unit-4-should-spend-money-instruction.html


I have asked several questions of Dr. Wiegand along similar lines (I’ll publish those later). I have also started to look at the “Strategic Plan” and “10-year Capital Improvement Plan” that came out of Great Schools Together, which the Board and the administration say they are following. The 10-year CIP is extremely short on actual plans, in my opinion, and it seems like we have missed a bulk of the goals in the Strategic Plan.
