What the school board should really do

Tony FlitcraftFrisco

Is it coincidental that two articles regarding the Summit School Board appear on the same page in the Aug. 26 Daily News?The first article addresses the board’s wording to appear on the coming November ballot requesting a $32 million bond issue, and the continuation of a three-year mill levy.In the second, the board refutes an unethical charge made by former Summit School Superintendent, Dr. Lynn Spampinato, which was printed in the Aug. 25 Daily News. She is now employed as the superintendent of the St. Louis School District. Spampinato received a huge golden parachute upon her termination from Summit School District.We tax-paying voters should be aware that we will be paying on Spampinato’s golden parachute through June 2005.Seems to me that the Summit School Board should apply more efficiency to use the resources it already has, and apply less effort to justify new requirements for more of our money to mismanage.
