Answers to the February 13th Community Meeting's questions

Original post made by Greg Smitherman, Midtown, on Apr 22, 2011

As many of you may recall the Advocates for Youth group sponsored a community meeting so that the district could provide an interim report on the progress being made on the "connectedness" focused goal for the year. We had invited audience questions, but ran out of time for the district to answer any of them. We submitted all of the questions to the district and they have been working on answering them. I received the answers right before spring break, but due to travel and work am a bit tardy in posting them.

There is a bunch of lies in this answers. Are they dumb or do they just pretend to be. I could go pointing at each question, but if they did not take the questions seriously and they just tried to make themselves good instead of being honest, it is not worth it to take my time to explain what is wrong with them. So frustrating.

The District says: " no student is denied access to TEAM Paly. Families need to opt to enter their students in the lottery for a chance to become a TEAM student." These seem like contradictory statements. If every child is allowed access, why is there a lottery? Why can't I enroll my student in TEAM?

Someone at PAUSD please clarify.
