Superintendent Fagen responded to the request to correct misinformation — to read the response and to read the follow up email submitted by Strong Schools Coalition, click here. As we represent our more than 700 members, we will keep you updated with progress on this issue.
Two recent presentations to the Board of Education — May 7, 2013 and May 21, 2013 — included updates on the change to the high school schedule including the impact on instructional time. Contradictory information was provided as in the first presentation the Board members were told that instructional time had increased 3.24 hours per 1.0 credit, while in the second presentation and once the analysis was complete, the end result was that instructional time had decreased by 10.26 hours per 1.0 credit. Unfortunately, the public was misinformed as the former information was distributed through a Superintendent Update sent out to all parents. A correction needs to be made and a formal request was submitted to Superintendent Fagen and the Board of Directors on May 28, 2013.
