Letter to the Editor: K-12 admin is not the answer

It is not possible for one principal to adequately oversee Incline Elementary School, Incline Middle School and Incline High School. There may only be around 1,000 students in the three Incline schools, but kindergarten students through high school seniors will have too many needs for one principal and three site administrators to address. One site administrator per school is not enough administration on each campus.

In the state’s recent rankings of schools, Incline Elementary School and Incline High School received only a three-star rating; Incline Middle School received a five-star rating. Hmm …. let me think about this … two of our three schools are not performing well, and we are taking away two principals. Why are the parents of the K-12 students not raising cain with WCSD? Each one of our schools needs a principal. Our children are going to be cheated and more children will “fall through the cracks.”

I am a substitute teacher at Incline High School and I assure you the students, parents and teachers at our high school need and deserve a principal and vice principal on campus. Our high school teachers will have more out of the classroom “administrative” work that will interfere with their “inside” of the classroom teaching efforts

Are Incline residents being punished for the overcharged property tax that Washoe County had to refund to homeowners?
