Letter: RFSD board must retain Stein

Ellen Freedman and Auden Schendler

The question of whether Rob Stein is remaining with the Roaring Fork School District continues to loom large for many of us. We are at a critical point right now as the school board is reviewing Rob’s and Diana Sirko’s contracts at this week’s school board meeting.

We are wondering: What is the board’s process for negotiating the contracts? Would the board sign with Diana without having things worked out with Rob? Are they willing to get creative about Rob’s and Diana’s roles and would they consider limiting Diana’s contract to one year?

We believe that it makes strategic and financial sense to retain Rob and move him into the superintendent position as soon as possible. We agree with Rob that our district should be in the top 5 percent of our state’s schools, and we think he can get us there.
