What is in the best interest of our children?

Polito stated. “The pattern of frequent superintendent turnover in the last decade and a half is alarming, and the latest decision seems particularly incongruous given the superintendent’s notable accomplishments.”

In closing, Polito stated “For years the groups and people I have supported have spoken about wanting a bold, innovative, disruptor to recreate our school system into a successful system focused on the students and the outcomes. The prevailing question is whether our actions align with the best interests of our students or if other, less noble agendas have taken precedence.”
