Statement from MESD Board President Denis Fama and the Trustees. Dear Parents,Guardians and Staff of the Millbrae School District:
The School Board is aware of concerns on the part of Parents, Guardians and Staff regarding the District, its operations and our Board. Issues about communication, transparency, board visibility, management, and leadership have all been expressed. We are reviewing each of these areas carefully.
The Trustees have heard the concerns and take them seriously. Individual Trustees continue to meet with parents and teachers to look for solutions, and we have received many good ideas. Please realize that no single Trustee can effect change or make decisions without the agreement of the Board. In addition, we need to follow regulations governing how and when the board meets, which slows things down. But please be assured that our Board has the best interests of our school community at heart, and will do the right things.
