Better Late Than Never



I want to publicly thank school board member Kim Pound for recognizing the mistake of the school board’s ways in eliminating the only counselor position at the middle school earlier this year.

Thanks to him, this issue has found its way to the school board’s agenda. While it’s a little late to act on this with school starting this month, the trite truism holds: better late than never.

The next board meeting is scheduled for July 30 at 5:30 p.m. I don’t know if the middle school counselor position will show up on that agenda, but let’s keep a lookout shall we?

And you can come and speak on that issue (or any other) whether it’s on the agenda or not. Just arrive by 5:15 p.m. and complete the paper at the back door of the meeting room in the administration building.

Where was the rest of the school board? Maybe they should be replaced if they can't make it to meetings. Seems when there is an important vote on the agenda for a meeting only a few of the members show up. A full board should be there or postpone the vote.
