New School Board Member Ellen M. Purdy attended her first meeting this week along with fellow newcomer Ilka Chavez and new Superintendent Dr. Catherine Magouyrk.
But before that she was busy gathering comments, requests, observations, and recommendations from parents, educators and residents, among others, in an effort to come up with an "overarching vision and framework to stimulate a discussion of a future direction for our schools."
"Since you have been generous in sharing your thoughts in the past, I’d very much appreciate your response to the ideas," Purdy wrote in an email. "Tell me what you think is knuckle-headed, misguided, needs improvement, or if you like something. My intent is to be as responsive to parents, educators and residents as I can."
