I allow anonymous posts because I believe it is important to hear as many voices as possible, and I understand that sometimes parents, teachers, and/or community members do not feel comfortable identifying themselves. I do not censor posts, and I do not promise to respond to everything written by others. I do read all posts prior to posting them to avoid inappropriate language. I also will not post any entry identifying district staff/teachers by name. District employees may not feel comfortable responding to these types of comments on a public blog, and it is therefore not fair to comment on individuals. In order for us all to have a productive and constructive conversation I ask that all participants refrain from making any comments they would not feel comfortable saying face to face.
Finally, to set the appropriate expectations I cannot and will not engage in an online deliberation of school committee business which could be construed as any violation of the . In this case, I will likely suggest posters contact all school committee members to request a formal agenda item.
Please consider this request before posting.
