Divided Local


In the last month I have seen four letters regarding the United Local School District permanent improvement levy. Two of these letters seemed to be designed to stir the pot using misinformation or partial information. The other letters were factual, point by point rebuttals.

I am very concerned by the divide that is occurring in our community regarding this issue. United Local is a rural district. Our school not only serves to educate our children, it is the social center of our community and should bring us together, not cause division. In the 18 years I have lived here,I have always been impressed with the pride people have shown in their school and community.

If you have concerns regarding the management of the district, please take the time to engage the administration or board members. Please do not use this forum to spread secondhand stories or hearsay that are only intended to cause controversy.
