To the editor:
At Monday’s Board of Education meeting, I heard many of you express your concerns about the restructuring of the PVC reading program. You believe that our children will not receive the reading support that they need to succeed academically.
While the administration assured you that the reading program was not being cut, just restructured, I heard your fears. You don’t want to risk the possibility of our children falling behind.
I believe that many of your concerns can be alleviated by keeping the lines of communication open. Waiting for the administration to formally evaluate the program, as a whole, would not ease your concerns about our children, but periodic updates would. And, this could be done simply through brief bi-weekly e-mails from the reading staff.
As your Board member, I want the administration to be held accountable for our children’s reading progress. I promise to work hard to make sure this happens. I want the best for our children. I hope that I can count on your support.
