Letter: Consider what’s best for our kidsThe debate over the attendance boundaries for ISD 833 has caused quite a bit of concern for those of us with young children.
The debate over the attendance boundaries for ISD 833 has caused quite a bit of concern for those of us with young children. People have argued about having to move schools or not getting to move schools.
What we need to consider is what is best for kids. Is it best to take the path of least resistance now and move the fewest kids, only to have to redraw lines in five years? The easiest path, is not always the best.
The school board needs to look at putting kids in the school as close as possible to their neighborhood. Children having to ride a bus 30 minutes to and from school, past three other elementary schools, when they could easily walk to a neighborhood school is not what is best.
Please consider the red and blue plans over the white plan as they most closely meet the objectives of creating neighborhood schools and close communities.
