My Goal in Blogging

I started this blog in May of 2008, shortly after my election to the School Committee, because I believed it was very important to both provide the community with an opportunity to share their thoughts with me about our schools and to provide me with an opportunity for me to ask questions and share my thoughts and reasoning. I have found the conversation generated on my blog to be extremely helpful to me in learning community views on many issues. I appreciate the many people who have taken the time to share their views. I believe it is critical to the quality of our public schools to have a public discussion of our community priorities, concerns and aspirations.

NEW Amherst School Committee Meeting, March 3rd

Just wanted to let people know about a new Amherst School Committee that will be held on Tuesday, March 3rd, at 7 pm in the high school cafeteria. This meeting will include updated information on the plans that are still on the table (keep four schools, close MM and keep three schools K to 6, close MM and move the 6th grade to the MS), and hopefully more information on economic stimulus funds, state aid, etc. I'd highly recommend coming to this one!
