I have received a lot of feedback from the community regarding the rezoning process that is being proposed for our Richland Two high schools. Please know that I am dedicated to all of our high schools and our students equally. Also know that I am looking to the future, not just the here and now, as I work through this difficult process and that I am not “caving” to political pressures. Rather, I am using common sense, looking at the strengths and weaknesses of each school, and looking at how this process can lead to creating stronger schools across the district for many years to come. Richland Two has a long history of success and I am dedicated to providing the necessary resources and required level of commitment in all of our schools that will allow for this hard earned reputation to continue well into the future. I will not do anything that will benefit one school’s students at the expense of another. In addition, there are rumors circulating that the board is considering a plan that would increase the free/reduced lunch population at RNE to 85%. This is not true, there is no such plan under consideration. I appreciate your trust in me to make the best decision for all 26,000 students that attend Richland Two schools.
