“I will refrain from commenting on the research process at this time. I don’t want my personal professional plans to become a distraction as we make tough decisions about keeping schools safe and open during the current COVID outbreak and so on. that we begin taking action at Tuesday’s school board meeting to address the major budget deficit facing the school district in 2022-23. ”
