Letter: Honor the process
I find it alarming that the RE-1 Board is considering the renewal of Superintendent Diana Sirko’s contract and not honoring the community process that thoroughly vetted candidate Rob Stein for the job. Sirko’s post was seen as a temporary one until Stein could take the position.
Had a group of aware and active parents not brought this to light, the board may have quietly and behind closed doors — for whatever reason — renewed Sirko’s contract. While Sirko did her job, Stein brings a new level of innovative thinking to education going forward.
Please speak out at today’s board meeting at 6 p.m. held at Roaring Fork High School to demand the board respect the immense effort that went into the search for a new superintendent.
We need the right leader at the helm to take this district’s embrace of learning and personal accountability whether student, teacher or parent to new heights.
