THANK YOU GAIL AND MANDY!
Original post made by Lynn on Nov 13, 2007
We ask our board members to be well versed in a wide range of issues that impact our district, including education policy at the national, state, county and local level, leases, contracts, labor negotiations, budget management, technology, Education Code and the Brown Act, student performance, textbook selection, transportation, safety, student and staff discipline, student health and wellbeing (stress, nutrition, drug, alcohol and tobacco concerns) and many others.
Gail and Mandy dedicated themselves to our district, and dealt with difficult situations over the years with grace and dignity, never forgetting that the children in our community were their primary concern.

Yes, thank you very much, and also to those who diligently attend the board meetings, volunteers and interested parties. This is part of the process and our thanks are for you also.

Yes, thank you both. I think you were very principled and thoughtful in your time on the Board. I wish you the best, and I wish you a good long rest. :0) Thanks for serving so well ans so diligently.

While both people served diligently and well, I want to point out that Gail did so while also working full-time.
It is a pity that we have gotten to the point where it is perceived to be virtually impossible to serve on our Board AND work.
I wonder if it is time to consider salaries for our Board members so that those who must earn a living can also consider running.
