This is the same Stephanie Totter who has been running up a legal bill for the district over "personnel issues" and the same board that has been running up a bill over Superintendent Ghysels conflict of interst. Throw the bums out during the next election!

The board gives the cad Ghysels a raise while cutting these people's salaries. Very unfair and very unethical. Even Obama knows that now is not the time to be raising anyone's salary, least the likes of Ghysels. I agree the board should be voted out post-haste.

The board should resign for doing this to loyal, hard-working employees helping the neediest of kids in a poor economy.

I am aware of the issues with the administration, but I chose to be a part of the solution and not dwell in the negative. The positive side of this is that the parents of special education kids are banding together to form a much needed special education PTA. We are working behind the scenes trying to bring it all together but we need all the help that we can possibly get. So please, if you have any interest in helping us with this, let me know. Right now I am attending as many PTA meetings as I possibly can to help spread the word. If you can think of other places where I should be, please send me the info. I am happy to talk to people about our efforts and ask them for their help in making this happen. My email is mentioned in this article. Thanks, Nan
