Statement From Shaftsbury School Board
As board chair I would like to say that the Shaftsbury Board of Directors wants to let the community know that we want to come together to support the principal and superintendent.
The focus we have foremost should be on our students — like in the wonderful presentations we have seen on integrating the arts and sciences, and the great work that is being done to provide a high quality education.
We are aware of the current climate, and as a board we feel strongly that we want to move in a positive direction. We have a lot to be proud of, excellent teachers, and all staff who want the best for families and students. That is why Shaftsbury School has always had such a positive reputation for providing a wonderful educational environment — and has strong support from community members, parents, and those who care for our students and the community.
In the future we will be working as a team to support the work that all of our administrators and staff are doing to provide the best education possible for our students. We appreciate your support in that positive direction — imagine the possibilities!
