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.

I'm pasting the Gazette profile of our first superintendent finalist, Dr. John Bayless to help the community learn more about his background and experiences (http://gazettenet.com/2011/01/18/amherst-superintendent-finalist-california-not-fazed-conflict-bo). I hope all interested parents and community members will come meet Dr. Bayless on Wednesday (8 to 9 am, ARMS cafeteria, or 2 to 3, WW library, or 6 to 8 pm, ARHS library). Feedback forms can be completed at any of these public forums. All School Committees can be reached with comments at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
