Do You Know The "Facts"?

Do You Know The "Facts"? Do You Have The Facts? Quoted from a flyer passed out to VES and MSE students and their families in Nov 2008: "Passing the bond reaffirms the importance of maintaining Vinland and Marion Springs in the long-term master planning of District facilities." Once the new school was completed the BOE became determined to close the rural schools. Mr. Dorathy once promised the rural teachers and patrons that he would never close schools in his administration. Many teachers remember the day he said this. His latest recommendation was to close both rural schools. How can we ever trust this board and administration in the future?
