Community members responded quickly to an open letter from Elise and Grant Johnson, parents at MBMS and MCHS, who lambasted teachers that turned up at last week’s school board meeting with dozens of parents and students to demand transparency and express their distrust in district leadership after a $1 million “accounting error” in favor of the district. Kim Leserman wrote to Pennekamp teachers:
“Please know that we continue to support each and every one of you and hope that the letters in
the press today do nothing to impede your courageous and important fight to achieve the full
truth and transparency that you so deserve and we all need! “
Ms. Leserman included two attachments in her correspondence that carried an extremely important message to the community. She asked that if people read either attachment, they READ BOTH. She and Melissa Stein also expressed concern for “Trustees who could simply be caught in the cross-fire … with no ability to talk openly about their own facts at this point”.
We encourage every MBUTA member to read these documents to better understand the emerging situation! Please click on the links below to read BOTH attachments. VERY IMPORTANT!
