Keep positive momentum
We moved to DCSD in 2012. I’d heard about the excellent school district and was pleased that my child could attend DCSD schools.
As I learned about the decisions of the former board, and how they were affecting the teachers and students in DCSD, I became concerned. Excellent educators left my child’s school for other districts, and I heard from other parents that the same thing was happening at their children’s schools. I got involved with the PTO and began volunteering with fundraising, and saw just how much those funds were utilized to compensate for the funding gap between what was received from the state and district, and what was needed for teachers and administrators to be effective.
After the last election, the atmosphere at my child’s school changed and became happier and more optimistic, upbeat and positive. The attrition rate across the district has dropped. Our PTO has been able to raise money for “extras,” like a digital marquee, and focus less on funding items more “operational” in nature. The new board is refreshingly open and transparent, and the regular updates from Dr. Tucker are greatly appreciated.
My daughter was getting an excellent education in spite of the former board. Now, she’s getting an excellent education because of the current board and the great strides made in the last two years. I will gladly vote for Hanson, Meek, and Ray to keep this momentum going.
