An opportunity for change

Dear Editor:

With the resignation of Roaring Fork High School’s principal Dale Parker, the ecstatic attitude of the many savvy and involved educators, parents and community members is like a virtual dancing in the streets. Our town hasn’t felt this good since winning the bond for our new schools. We have a chance, at last, to fill the new, state-of-the-art designed high school with a principal who deserves to be there, who can turn the disasters of the last three years around, and who can lead our deserving children into a competitive bid for the future.

Let’s hope the board and superintendent FINALLY step up and put a principal in place who will follow Basalt High School’s lead for high standards and individual attention, and who will win back the awesome teachers we have lost.
