School “Chats” bring information sharing

May 24th, 2010 by Ken

The first of three scheduled “chats” with the superintendent of the North Thurston Public Schools, drew nine members of the public, most of whom wanted to talk about their individual student and that student’s problems with school.

Superintendent Raj Manhas listened to all complaints with apparent interest but had some agenda items of his own including the district’s efforts to raise math and science scores.

He did provide some information of general interest.  He said the district had done a good job of being frugal with money and it didn’t appear that any district classroom teachers would lose their job next year.

He also said he wanted to gain community support to place another technology levy before the voters in the near future.  A technology levy in 2006 failed.

The next “coffee chat” with the superintendent will be at the Lacey Boulevard Cutter’s Point on Tuesday, June 1 from 2:30 to 4 p.m. while the final one will be on Tuesday, June 8 at the Hawks Prairie Cutter’s Point.
