I'm writing to express my strong support for the three building projects proposed by the board and administration of ISD 181.

Contrary to the complaints of a previous letter, I found the information regarding the need and plans of the school (on blueprint181.org) very informing. While there might be a desire by some voters to be included in every meeting, every discussion, every specific decision, in truth, we elect the board members to represent our community wisely, and we very carefully vet and hire the school administrators who use their expertise and experience to determine the best learning environment for our students.

Let's not let technicalities or hurt feelings detract from what's needed. The school board and school personnel worked hard to review needs and create plans with the various communities of our school district. They looked at all the possibilities and came up with what they believe are the best solutions for school growth and improvement. They are now recommending three proposals for our approval. I trust their good intent, as well as their expertise. I will say yes to all three. There is no more precious resource in our community than the students we are preparing for their and our community's future. Please show up to vote on April 10, and please support the needs of our school district.
