I believe this district focused it's resources onto sports rather than the kids. Wonder why this district has FOUR different facilities? They have a great football, basketball, and running track. Our elementary was closed because they CHOSE to close it rather than properly handle their funding. Their 5 year plan and we had no input until the final year. Kids split up, classes doubled, way too much "traveling" to get to gym, cafeteria, music, etc. Lost a lot of the personal interaction. No...sorry to say that this far into the 2012-2013 year and I am still not happy. And let's not even get into security issues (see "travelling" above). I want our school back!! And not even a PTA or regular meetings with parents!! We get told what will happen not asked for any input. They even limit fund raising...can you believe that?
