Letter Writer issues concerns about school walk out Policy.

Share

 

The East Penn School Board voted down a proposal to ‘limit student activism’ on April 23rd. This policy was proposed by Board Director Carol Allen. Ms. Allen shares concerns by parents and taxpayers and that’s that ‘district employees shall not engage in political activities during assigned work hours on property under jurisdiction of the board.’ (PSBA policy 321)

EP School Director, Carol Allen

What was lost on those against such a policy, is the purpose of the proposed policy is NOT to require students to ask permission or an attempt to stifle the student’s freedom of speech. The purpose is to ensure the procedures governing such actions are ‘viewpoint neutral’ and enforced in a consistent manner allowing for all voices

Dear Editor,

I have attended the East Penn School Board meetings and have some concerns that seem to have fallen on deaf ears. When Board member Carol Allen brought up the PAYS (Pennsylvania Youth Survey) for grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 at the September 25, 2017 meeting, I was quite concerned about that survey. I was able to acquire a copy of the over 200+ questions and was shocked to read some of them. As a parent, I know I would not want my children answering those invasive questions. Truly an invasion of privacy

East Penn/Emmaus HS Superintendent Schilder

 

The issue of School Real Estate Property Tax Relief has been a hot issue for years and has been getting hotter! Many citizens have been organizing with taxpayer groups across the Commonwealth to pressure State politicians to do something meaningful. Act 76 is one issue that has reached the boiling point. Act 76 would have increased the State Income Tax slightly and the Sales Tax would have seen slight increase in exchange for the ELIMINATION OF SCHOOL PROPERTY TAXES!

Groups opposed to this are the Teacher’s Unions, School Administrators, and the Chamber of Commerce.

If Act 76 had passed, schools could still tax property to pay off debt. That is why school

New School Director questions PA Youth Survey

Share

 

Folks:

I am a newly elected conservative School Board Director in Boyertown.

Here in Boyertown, we had “raised a lot of dust” at a recent board meeting regarding the PA Youth Survey. The Reading Eagle also had an article from the discussion we had on the PA Youth Survey or “PAYS”. Here is the link for the article: http://www.readingeagle.com/news/article/boyertown-school-board-concerned-about-state-survey

One order of business that our community would like to see changed is our use of the PA Youth Survey. This survey gathers information that many see as totally impertinent to educating our children.

Some sample questions from the Pa Youth Survey are:

“how often do you attend religious services or activities?”,

“People in my family often insult or

Discussion with Lynn Donches, former East Penn School Board Director

Share

Lynn Donches served on the East Penn School Board from December 0f 2011 through November 2015. The Commentator requested that she share her perspective on her experience.

Lynn stated that her goals upon entering office were to promote transparency, accountability, fiscal responsibility while maintaining a high standard of education for the students, and to encourage more public participation.

Lynn initiated more discussions and more questions being asked with positive results. An example is a reduction in bond management fees stemming from her question asking if it was possible to reduce the fees (12/8/14 minutes). As a result, the fees were reduced by 15% (2/23/15 minutes), which in turn saved thousands of dollars. We thank you Lynn for asking that important question,
