Letter: Re-1 board: Honor the process

I find it alarming that the Re-1 board is considering the renewal of Superintendent Diana Sirko’s contract and not honoring the community process that throughly vetted candidate Rob Stein for the job. Dr. Sirko’s post was seen as a temporary one until Mr. Stein could take the position.

Had a group of aware and active parents not brought this to light, the board may have quietly and behind closed doors — for whatever reason — renewed Dr. Sirko’s contract. While Dr. Sirko did her job, Dr. Stein brings a new level of innovative thinking to education going forward.

Please speak out at the Wednesday, Dec. 10, board meeting starting at 5 p.m. at Roaring Fork High School to demand the board respect the immense effort that went into the search for a new superintendent.

We need the right leader at the helm to take this district’s embrace of learning and personal accountability whether student, teacher, or parent to new heights.
