The Regional School Unit 5 Board of Directors met on April 28 to consider action on middle school programming. At that meeting, I was asked to confirm the information in Amy Anderson’s article published April 22, 2010, entitled “Parents to be polled for school preference.” Unfortunately, I did not have the information available at that time and was unable to answer the question.
In reviewing the details, the information presented in the article accurately reflects what was presented at the meeting. I wanted to take this opportunity to confirm the accuracy because I was unable to do so at the public meeting. In my experience, Amy takes care to ensure accurate and balanced reporting.
We appreciate the coverage provided by The Forecaster, which helps us keep our citizens informed.
