Letters of Support for DY Schools

April 2, 2010

Here are a few letters in our local newspapers showing support for our schools. Click on each title to read the full article or letter.

Crystal Gips: Academic Outcomes at D-Y, part 2

As a follow-up to last week’s Dennis-Yarmouth Support Our Schools article that looked at the district’s positive impact as measured by school completion rates and college going rates, this article offers more specific evidence that the efforts of the D-Y Regional School District are producing results with the students in its communities.

SHEILA GAGNON, YARMOUTH PORT: Yarmouth Needs Override to Support Schools

I implore the school committee to certify a budget and ask the selectmen to place an override on the warrant and subsequent ballot, and to take the leadership to promote and explain this necessity to the people of Yarmouth.
This doesn’t mean the committee should stop looking for more cuts, or that if successful all the money needs to be spent. It would mean that everyone in town would pay a small amount (at the present budget figures about $90 for a $300,000 house). We would have the satisfaction of everyone helping everyone else.
We did it for Haiti, do it for our community.

MEREDITH COLBERT, South Yarmouth: Cooperation Needed on D-Y School Budget

We all have to change with the times and that includes having all the facts as to what is actually happening within our schools.
With our ever-changing society and population, public schools are having to address so many more issues than education. Many children are in school for up to 10 hours a day. We feed, cloth, medicate, counsel, discipline and guide children and then we try and educate them.
Public schools have many mandated programs within their buildings. Private schools and charter schools do not have to service these children. Public schools welcome all children and work tirelessly to give all children what they specifically need.
