Dear DCSD Board of Education Directors,

We would like to include all of you in a recent email exchange we have had with Director Benevento.  We contacted Mr. Benevento back on February 25th regarding a Facebook post he made accusing the Strong Schools Coalition of providing inaccurate information.  Unfortunately Mr. Benevento has been unwilling to share his specific concerns regarding our information and has not accepted our invitation to attend a public Strong Schools Coalition meeting where we offered to give him the opportunity to present his concerns.

As we are committed to providing accurate, well researched information, we would like to extend the invitation to all Board of Education members to attend a public Strong Schools Coalition meeting and present any concerns that you may have regarding the accuracy of information provided by our organization.  If you are interested in presenting, please let us know by March 23rd so we can make the necessary arrangements.

Laura Mutton and Susan Meek
