Letters: Get involved to recharge public schools

The initiative “Beyond Bricks EBR,” a community-driven discussion to recharge public schools, experienced great success during the spring school semester in gathering input from our community on its vision for our school district.

 More than 500 participants and 1,000 volunteer hours resulted in the first step to reinvigorate ownership of our public schools.The results of this effort can be found in our report at www.beyondbricksEBR.org/results.In summary, our community clearly desires a way to have our students attend schools closer to home with excellent programs that provide every student with an appropriate educational opportunity.
