In light of the tone and hostile content of recent comments (some which we have chosen to reject), we have changed the guidelines for posting comments. The new guidelines state:
We welcome your comments. While we will accept anonymous comments, we would appreciate if you would identify yourself as an elementary or middle school parent, teacher or community member.
We reserve the right to not publish comments. The purpose of this blog is to support the education of D181 students and present facts, data and opinions related to D181 issues. We ask commentators to avoid name calling or unfounded and sweeping allegations. No profanity will be allowed. We will reject comments that do not address specific D181 issues that have been addressed in posts or that you would like us to write about. Under Common Core these days our children must support their arguments with what is written in the text. Opposing opinions are ok - ad hominem attacks are not.
