At the recent “Meet the Candidates Night,” sponsored by the PTA Council and Summit County League of Women Voters, one of the incumbent Board of Education members addressed a question regarding how the Board communicates with teachers. The answer was: recently the Assistant Superintendent, Brian Williams, met with twenty-six groups of teachers to ask what teachers needed in their classrooms, and that, in response, only one group gave an answer, which was “dry erase markers.” The incumbent continued by saying that “they got their markers the next day.”

During these twenty-six meetings, teachers and administration collaborated many hours on test scores and how to best help our students. Sadly, CTA feels the response at the Candidates Night was a misrepresentation of both our working relationship with Mr. Williams and the work we accomplished during worthwhile meetings.

Jim Borchik, Steve Coon, and Paula Lynn have the kind of experience our community, students, and staff need.
