I was surprised by the fast tracking of the recent controversial decision to make our elementary schools safe by bringing more guns onto the premises.
Over the protests of two members of the school board requesting more time to study the situation, three board members rushed to finalize the plan.
They tout the survey that was conducted which proved that parents overwhelmingly supported security. The survey asked if they wanted the schools to be secure and of course who does not. They said yes.
Not an honest question to base their claim of approval for placing armed guards in our schools. I find the whole thing strange and very questionable.
Never miss a local story.
The next board meeting will be 5:45 p.m. Sept. 23 at the school board office. I plan to attend and hope that others who would like more information about this million-dollar plan will also be there.
Maybe we will hear there is money in the budget to solve the shortage of working computers in the schools and tech staff to keep them working.
