Communities are measured by the quality of their schools. How will the "community" of Marietta be measured after the May 3rd vote on the School's Emergency Levy? In just a very few days voters will decide the quality of the education it is willing to provide for the children of our city. The teachers, school board members, school administrators and I don't get to decide. You do. What is at stake is the quality of life in Marietta, the value of your homes, and the future of the 3064 children we teach every day. That being said, the decision is still yours. As the Superintendent of Schools I will respect whatever the decision is, and I will continue to do my very best to provide a safe and productive learning environment for our students each and every day.
