Wow! What an incredible violation of the Public's trust!

The Fox C-6 community cannot trust our school district leaders or the school board if the school board approves the revised school board policies at the March 2014 school board meeting.

Never mind that the revised school board policies still have mistakes in them or have points of contact in them who have been retired for nearly 6 years. The district and the Board of Education has only had 3+ years to work on them.

It's the fact that Superintendent Critchlow and our school board made very little effort to fully inform the public that they were even available on the district website for review since being announced at the February 2014 school board meeting by Superintendent Dianne Critchlow.

When did Superintendent Critchlow publicly inform "everyone" in the district that the updated board Policies, Regulations and Forms were available on the district website for the public to review?

She didn't!

She didn't even make a post on her Twitter account notifying the public about the updated Policies, Regulations and Forms:

The district only posted an obscure link on the Board of Education Documents webpage last month that read "Documents for Review" to inform the public that the revised board policies were available for public review.

Read the request posted in the March 18, 2014 school board meeting packet that was posted on the district website on Tuesday March 11, 2014.

To even think that our school board members would approve the updated policies without notifying the public that they were available for review anywhere outside of the confines of the February 2014 school board meeting to the very few people in attendance is a violation of the public trust and a violation of school board policies.

The Fox C-6 community needs to begin a recall of school board members if the board allows Superintendent Critchlow to get by with this charade. The lack of integrity of our district leadership DOES NOT represent that of a National District of Character.

Email your school board members and let them know that this is unacceptable.
