Thank you to all of the PreK-9th grade supporters and speakers at last night’s school board meeting. Many parents and CLUE teachers were there, as were Dr. Toarmina and Dr. Yelvington. Speakers during the public comment section represented Campus School, Chimney Rock Elementary, Downtown Elementary, Grahamwood, White Station Middle and White Station High School. Three speakers were students from Chimney Rock Elementary, White Station Middle and White Station High School. There were so many speakers that the list was prematurely cut short and speakers were limited to just over a minute to comment.
Common themes from parents included: CLUE being a deciding factor for parents in choosing public vs. private, CLUE as a resource to develop critical writing and reasoning skills to gain admittance into top colleges and universities, keeping CLUE in keeping with school board and school consolidation goals, and don’t disrupt a program with proven student success
