Letter to the Editor: School district leadership in question

On the Silver Falls School District financial situation:

Where was (Assistant Superintendent) Dan Busch during the last 12 months? … Where was the School Board?

The School Board absence and neglect during the past 12 month is completely unacceptable. The “thank you note” delivered to Mr. Drue at the March 13 public meeting is totally incomprehensible. 

I invite you to visit the Silver Falls School District website and read excerpts of the School Board letter of appreciation and gratitude expressed to Mr. Drue “for his dedication and impactful contribution.”

As of today, we just know what we do not know. I look forward for a full investigation. In the meantime, I support the idea of contacting the Oregon Department of Education or having an interim superintendent from WESD.
