Our three daughters’ education were victims of the Marysville Schools policies and curriculum. We realized as parents that we were competing with several elements to be influential in our children’s development of which the Marysville Schools played a major role.
Its campus policies, poor wuality of teaching staff and curriculum was a negative influence in their development. We discovered that efforts to address our concerns were discounted and dismissed by the school district staff. Nothing has changed since our children’s graduation except the publics heroic reluctance to underwrite poor performance with the award of more money. I encourage the residents of the Marysville School District to continue to say no to the school levies and not be intimidated by the district’s fear mongering. Only when a significant shift of policy direction should we consider approving a new levy. Until then money seems to be the only thing that they will listen to.
The ratings that the Marysville School District has received are mediocre at best and are not mentioned in their effort get another levy.
To the school district leadership, I recommend that a realignment of policies and curriculum compatible with this community’s values and standards be incorporated and strictly practiced.
We our fortunate in that our parental involvement with our children’s development overcame the negative exposures they experienced during their journey through Marysville Schools. But not everyone has the resources or determination we are fortunate to have.
Here are 3 “R”s for the Marysville School District to consider. Good performance receives good results which receive good reviews which warrants revenue approval.
