Missouri’s Commissioner of Education, Chris Nicastro, com­mends Dr. Covington and his lead­er­ship team on their aggres­sive plan to address the District’s finan­cial woes in her state­ment of sup­port.  She notes that the District is on the right track by propos­ing a “sound and fis­cal­ly respon­si­ble plan” that redi­rects resources to deliv­er­ing qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion for our stu­dents.  Mike Casserly, Executive Director of The Council of the Great City Schools, issued his state­ment of sup­port for the superintendent’s efforts to real­lo­cate scarce resources to the aca­d­e­m­ic achieve­ment of our stu­dents.  Numerous local civic and labor orga­ni­za­tions issued a col­lec­tive state­ment of  sup­port for the District’s thought­ful and com­pre­hen­sive plan to right size our dis­trict.  This over­whelm­ing pub­lic sup­port for Dr. Covington’s Right Sizing plan should send a clear mes­sage to the School Board.  A vote to approve the plan is a vote to move our dis­trict for­ward.
