Aspen schools to hold teacher meetings

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” Superintendent Diana Sirko agreed Monday to talk to school administrators about arranging schoolwide meetings where teachers can express their concerns.

Representatives from the Aspen Education Association, a districtwide teacher advocacy group, said Monday that some teachers feel there isn’t a space for them to express their concerns in a way that allows them to percolate up to those in charge.

School Board member Laura Kornasiewicz pointed out the district has heard this concern before. Unless the district finds a way for teachers to express their “real, true, gutteral feeelings,” she said, the issue will continue to crop up.

“The purpose would not be to attack an administrator,” said Kirk Gregory. “The purpose would be teacher perspective, what’s going on in the school.”

The Aspen School District may be one of the few entities still purchasing vehicles in this recession. With funds from its technology and transportation bond, the Aspen School District recently purchased four school buses to replace old buses.

It also plans to purchase two pick-up trucks, and a used Toyota Highlander or other small sport-utility vehicle to be used by small groups of faculty or administrators traveling to trainings or meetings.
