Letters- Still upset with districtI want to acknowledge John A. Windolff, friends and many other community members that have listened to my situation and have either shared their similar situation or shown their support

I want to acknowledge John A. Windolff, friends and many other community members that have listened to my situation and have either shared their similar situation or shown their support. Although we could file a lawsuit and win, I am not interested in a creating a further financial burden for the district. Like I said in my previous letter, I am more interested in the students, the families and the community. I just want to see our district make some common sense decisions.
After I submitted my letter last week, I expected to hear from the district even if it was an intimidation tactic but I find it very interesting that no one from the district contacted me to ask me any questions. Apparently Superintendent Mary Bowen-Eggebraaten told the board that my article was coming out last week and it should be ignored. Isn’t that a red flag to the board that the superintendent is telling them to “ignore” such a serious situation? Doesn’t the board have a responsibility to at least ask some questions? And how did Mary know about the letter before the paper was even printed?
The more I learn about our district the more I am disheartened and disappointed. Our community deserves better.
P.S. As I finish my letter I am sure to proofread it unlike whoever was in charge of proofing the graduation program from last Saturday. My daughter’s last name was spelled wrong in the program and in her actual diploma. Well, it can be tough, “Robertson” is easy to mess up! Embarrassing, Ouch!
