Test scores are up. Dropout rates are down. So why is the job vacancy for superintendent of West Point schools about to become a hard sell for potential candidates?
Because one local group of â€śconcerned citizensâ€ť is threatening action if its demands are not met. And what are they demanding? Are they pleading for fairness in the hiring process?
They would say yes, but their actions say no. Are they asking for the school district to hire the most qualified candidate? Again, the answer is no.
Time to get outside this spring and soak up the sun with family and friends while listening to the sweets sounds of music from local musicians during the West Point/Clay County Arts Councilâ€™s free Sunday concert series.
The free concerts will be held at Sally Kate Winters Park in downtown West Point being April 17 at 3 p.m.
