What you missed was actually interesting and exciting!

Last nights BoE meeting at North Chatham was light in attendance...the usual crowd..Greg Solomon, the Horton moms, Gerald Totten, Peter Theye and a few others. That's really disappointing, but not surprising.

What you missed was actually interesting and exciting!

Ziggy Zimmerman and Ronnie Collins put in motion the presentations of several different professional "school planners". They were knowledgeable and helpful in a way unprecedented at any be meeting I've attended. The BoE and those in attendance were very impressed and I think we all left the meeting feeling like the train might finally be on the right track.

This won't come cheap, but it is the way to go in my opinion. This is exactly the sort of thing many of us have been requesting from the BoE for years. I am grateful to Mr. Zimmerman and Mr. Collins for making this happen.

So, for those few of you out there interested in such matters, I say there is good news at last. The BoE also decided to meet again this week on Thursday to move this along. This is going to cost some money and I encourage the public to support these efforts so Chatham County can finally have a long term, strategic plan in place for our school system. This is a group effort that will hopefully help to unit the different entities governing the county, with the end product being a school system that
Chatham County citizens can be proud of.

Thank you Ronnie and Ziggy and the rest of the BoE for embracing this idea.
