Sorry Neal, but YOU SAID: "More pay typically translates into better teachers". My point is this: pay GOOD teachers as much as you possibly can; get rid of tenure so the BAD teachers will be gone. Empower administrators to DEMAND excellence or they will be gone. And finally, this community needs to find a way to encourage regular citizens to seek school board positions so the board is not overwhelmed with past teachers with their pre-disposed mind set about education.

Harkner: If you think that more pay equates to better teachers you are living in a labor union fed dream state! Tell me if you think that Ward Churchill, making well over 100K per year, was the best educator we could have had at the University of Colorado. It's the quality of the individual, not the amount of compensation that drives good education. Do away with tenure; make teacher evaluations public; institute performance pay and DEMAND excellence. That's what will make the difference.

You have got to be kidding me! Heidi, pack up the kids and move to Florida; this is Colorado and guess what? It gets cold here, really cold! We live in it; work in it and PLAY in it! If you dont want your kids out in IT, what are you doing here? Kudo's to Principal Hepworth on a sound decision.
PS: Just don't put your tounge on the flagpole!

Business, as usual, for the Republicans. Just a reminder that the "good ole boy (and girl)" network is alive and well. If Mrs. Danner, OUR Commissioner, had been paying more attention to the applicants and NOT READING HER EMAIL, she might have recognized the strengths of the other applicants!!! This was as much a political inside job as anything that goes on in Washinton DC! Shame!!!

So this guys claim to fame is working on the Kobe Bryant case, that ended in dismissal so a rapist can walk the streets and a failed effort to be elected Sheriff? Excellent credentials to be an investigator in the DA's office! Great hire, madam DA!!

Nightmares never go away! I thought Loughran had run his course at our schools but I guess not. He was a TERRIBLE coach before and always will be. And an even worse mentor for our kids. Here is a perfect example of why our sports programs have not been, and will not be, successful. How low do you have to go to find someone to coach? I guess we know the answer
