Heavy on tightly spaced text and a few dinky pictures. How average. This district really does not know the first thing about communication.

@1: If you’d like to volunteer your expert services, I’m sure the disrict would love to put you to work doing something productive.

It is not a requirement that we find something to complain about for every article.

lol–Mr. John, that one is going to charge you.

I have never got to read any “Good News” about special education classes and they are on most campuses throuout the District. Surely there many positive things happening in those environments also.

I do mean the one with experience…….lol…Only a fool would spend on blanks.

The only good news I want to hear from MDUSD is that the worthless, corrupt superintendent Steve Lawrence and the holdover members from the old board have been tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail.

I have never been “aware ” of any good news that comes from M.D.U.S.D. ! I do agree it is a corrupt system in a lot of area’s. Special Education being the worst. Most classes are worse then sending you student to daycare. No Thanks!!!

#7, read the newsletter and you will see that lots of good things are going on in MDUSD.

Instead of throwing stones at MDUSD, be a part of the solution. The newsletter features an 80+ year old Gerry Barrera who volunteers in the library at Sun Terrace Elementary where she shelves and checks out over 1000 book per week. She cuts out and decorates a bookmark for almost every book that’s checked out. She crotchets and sells “bookworms” and donates the money to the library for new books. She’s raised $1850 this year! She does it because she feels it’s important for children to read.

Mr John, the district won’t let any of us volunteer for anything. You know, we can’t replace a paying position with a volunteer position. Believe me I’ve tried in many respects to help the district, the schools. Always a big fat no. We can’t do much of anything due to the union rules.

Not true, CVAnon,. Many parents and community members volunteers in the schools.

CVAnon, are you living under a rock? I’m constantly at my childrens’ school. Volunteering in the library, compluter lab, classroom, field trips, and the list goes on. Parent involvement is an important part of our children’s success!

cvanon: what are you on about??? as long as you are fingerprinted you can volunteer!!

CST and CSEA unions have preached to their members not to let a volunteer come in to replace hours that were cut, positions that were cut, etc. If you’re volunteering at a school doling work a paid employee used to do, then no one has snitched on you yet.

14 Really?! February 28, 2013 at 9:21 PM

Right on, #8! Mrs. Barrera treats it as work, and does she ever! While we teachers work hard, volunteers are integral to a more successful community.
