As a former school board member and board president, I know how important continuity can be for effective board and school district functioning. But continuity for continuity's sake is never enough. Continuity only works when board members are committed to their task, engaged in open discussion about improving our schools, and willing to learn and build together on behalf of our community and our community's children. Those things describe Darcie, Judy and Mark very well. Read their bios to understand how committed they are to public education, how much knowledge they bring to their roles, and how much they value open and transparent communication. I urge all Highland Park voters to give them the opportunity to continue the great work they've started.
