Get your eyes back on the ball

I have been reading your articles pertaining to the rotating officer schedule of the Federal Way School Board. I would like to start by saying that it appears that everyone’s eyes are not on the ball. We have the WASL, students dropping out of school, security issues and severe money problems. Does this not appear to be what people are reading as the major issues that the Federal Way school district has at this moment?

I don’t understand what is going on with one member of the board who refuses to attend graduation ceremonies to honor the students that are graduating, and another board member who seems to have a great loyalty to children that are not even in this country. As a member of the community, I would not want a person that feels that our children aren’t worthy of the graduation ceremony that they have worked so hard for to be board president.

I have read the other board members’ comments, and it appears that they do have their eyes on the ball. So what are these two doing?

I would hope that everyone on the board gets their eyes back on the ball. The students in this district need everyone on the School Board to focus on the issues that they are facing. Also, your superintendent needs all of the board’s support to get his job done. So please, board members, I don’t understand your intent by playing rotating chairs, but it certainly doesn’t seem to be addressing the problems this district is facing.
