It Finally Happened

 The Inglewood Unified School District has been taken over by the state. According to a distributed press release from Tom Torlakson’s (State Superintendent of Public Instruction) office, “…IUSD is the ninth school district to request an emergency loan…since 1990…only five have been returned to local governance…”

Today we have learned that former Inglewood High School graduate, Kent Taylor, has been appointed State Administrator over IUSD. Tomorrow, October 5th, parent leaders from each school site have been invited to meet with Mr. Taylor about his vision for IUSD. I will be in attendance and will share with you what we learn.  Mr. Taylor’s has over 20 years experience as a teacher along with holding assistant principal and principal positions.  He has also served 12 years as a board member of the Colton Unified School District.

In other news, I was elected Vice-President of School Site Council at Monroe and also elected as a member of the District Advisory Committee. In short, my life will be inundated with school board activities for the duration of my two-year term.

IUSD definitely would like to gain more support from the community, teachers, staff and parents, to continue to provide the students with the best service and education possible. Without parental support, this goal can not be achieved.
