School board needs to look at financial future

Monday night, the Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board turned down a proposed cut of a full-time fifth-grade teaching position for the 2018-19 school year.
Mind you, the administration wasn’t looking to eliminate someone’s job; instead, it was taking advantage of a retirement to reduce its staff by not replacing that teacher, and by moving a current fifth-grade teacher to another spot where he or she would be needed.

City Council needs to cultivate respect

By Rich Glennie
At a recent Glencoe City Council meeting, it seemed no one even wanted to make a motion to approve the monthly bills. The acrimony had gotten that bad among the council members.
One would have thought the council members were congressmen or the state legislators! Respect for others with differing views has become optional.
The last time things were this bad, Mayor Leon Johnson was dressed in body armor, Police Chief Wes Olson had to check his gun at the door, and the old council chambers were being guarded by a burly sheriff’s deputy.

School Board declines to cut position, adds new curriculum program

The Glencoe-Silver Lake School Board took on two major financial issues Monday night — a proposed reduction of a full-time fifth-grade teacher for the 2018-19 school year, and a proposal to implement a literacy curriculum.
The reduction of a 1.0 full-time equivalency (FTE) teacher failed 4-2, and the expenditure for a new literacy curriculum passed 4-2.
