An enlightened and informed citizenry is absolutely essential to a functioning society. As educators, our goal is to help create productive and enlightened citizens to best help their communities.

In most situations, it is advisable to contact teachers or principals if there is an immediate building level issue as resolution is most likely to occur as close to the source as possible. Typically, Kevin addresses district level issues or will follow up on concerns if not resolved at the building level.
