This is looking like a sham committee. People who work for a living cannot be there at 9:30am. Region 14 does not want to listen to us. They continue business as usual.

Measuring the impact of out of town students does not sound like a sham. Definitely a time consuming task for the volunteers in the district. I know it has been done before in Region 14 but the facts are too complicated for most people to listen to. Lets face it, the addition of students from other districts bolsters the region 14 budget and increases the offerings at the high school.

I was an out of town Ag student at Nonnewaug. If it wasn't for this program my life would have not been as successful. 39 years later I still give back to that program. Any monies used are well spent. Yes I am a Woodbury resident, prpoerty and business owner.
