Superintendents Prepare to Fight Back – The Superintendent position paper was crafted by Superintendents from around the state and signed by 174 of the 178 superintendents. At the November meeting our board signed a resolution to support the position of the superintendents from around the state. As you may be aware, funding for education has been cut for years across the state and this document is a way of unifying our message. Please take some time to read the position statement and also the board resolution and help us get the message to our elected officials in Denver.
