Thank you, Dr. Skelly, for putting the elephant to rest in the room.
Fortunately all the school board candidates were there to hear you say that we all need to move on from the MI decision.

In response to PA Parent - who seems to want to keep this in the forefront:
Funny, MI is the only thing that Skelly wants to 'move on' from, but everything ELSE the board considered last year is open for revisit. Curious, why is that? 'Cause it's a political hot potato, and he'd REALLY like it if he didn't have to deal with it? (ie: wishful thinking)
The fact is that EVERYTHING about MI is in our future. The only thing that's in our past is the board vote to approve. The development, the site location choice, the pilot analysis, the district staff time to implement, the Ohlone site staff time, the lottery, the reporting for the feds, the student performance results, the Ohlone community impact, etc etc etc. All in the future.
Skelly might ~like~ the idea of moving on (ie: sticking head in sand) but the sorry fact of the matter is that NONE of us get to move on and ignore MI. Unfortunately - for everyone - (including Skelly), its ALL out in the future to be dealt with.
And that cold hard fact is even MORE true for the supporters of MI than for the opposers.
Nothing would be more beneficial to the district than if we could actually put it behind us and move on.

You're down to a party of one at this point on your MI rants.
People are tired of hearing the SOS.
Keep going if you want, but at this point no one's listening, even the newly installed Supe.
