Guess we can expect more of the same since this board is interested in its employees more than its students. That is why it is so easy to cut programs that benefit the kids vs wages and benefits that go to the adults!

Sure they are all doing such a great job. NOT

Fred it is not the fault of the elected officials, the people who voted them in have a vested interest in the status quo, it is the fault of the community, which turns out in dismal numbers for these elections something like 15%. The answer get more people interested in local issues that affect the community and then get them to the polls on election day. Then we will truly have a school board that represents all of Port Washington's interest not the very few who are motivated to vote in a May election. Whatever direction the board takes at that point, at least the majority of the community will have spoken. My suggestion move the school board elections to the November ballot when people are already voting and in the mind frame of paying attention to important policy issues.

How about the "concerned" public showing up at school board meetings. What a concept!
