Off to school: And a promising, pivotal year
First, and at long last, the school year begins after Labor Day. Second, the calendar was altered to lengthen instructional time in the hope that the school day would be more productive. Third, a new superintendent brings the prospect (however remote) of a more productive relationship between the school board and the administration.
It is too early to tell whether the school district has turned a corner. Two important indicators will come later this school year, when we see whether a sensible contract can be negotiated with the MEA and whether the district again damages teacher morale by issuing dozens of pink slips. The two are related, of course. Parents will be watching. May they not be let down.
