So glad to see the E-R providing coverage of this matter which is of extreme importantance to many Wm Finch students, their families, and school personnel. While it has been on GCBE agendas for the past two months, I haven't seen coverage in either of two Glenn County news publications of either GCBE meeting.

My wife and I want to move our kids to William Finch but have decided to wait until "Hurricane Barrera" has blown by. We understand that the reserve has been taken and GCOE support is dwindling. We think the school is great and want it to stay that way. We are going to wait until after the next election before we move the kids.

Believe me, many are looking forward to the next election. Wm Finch is a great school and many good things do happen there. Finch students have won the local academic decathalon 4 years running, and amazingly did so without a sports program, proms, etc., etc. Wm Finch is all about learning and I like that. So does a student from my family who is enrolled there. I know Coleen Parker has a top job elsewhere, but wonder if she might consider returning and running for GCOE Supt. again.
