Bioscience High School is an indescribably unique and pioneering community that demands a selection process that will allow the time and effort to seek out the most appropriate and suited principal in order to maintain the current progress being made to improve our existing models. An unfit decision will certainly mean extreme set-backs and will negatively affect the relations we have established with community members, accomplishments Bioscience has made, the lives of highly effective students and most importantly the success of a community.
This having been said, the Bioscience High School community feels that a great injustice has been committed in regards to the selection of our new administrator. After the principal forum night (held Thursday 19, 2014) stakeholders do not feel that the commitments promised are being upheld: We were assured the position would be opened to the public, however the candidates were all from within the district and were in fact individuals who had initially applied to other principal positions. It was evident that the selection process was extremely pressured due to time constraints. Due to this fact, highly qualified applicants outside of the district and within Bioscience were not considered for the position. We, Bioscience students, alumni, parents, and community members are extremely disappointed and frankly fearful of what is to become of our administration and how that will impact our school. We are asking only for a process that is not rushed, takes into account all applicants and considers stakeholder values, needs, and perspectives.
