Dear NASD:
As you know we recently received individual school performance scores as well as the District’s overall school performance rating. While some demands initially seemed unrealistic even impossible with the assistance of media defamation, we succeeded. Congratulations on this notable success. Hard work and extra efforts of everyone such a deeply grounded team attributed to the success.
 
I understand that every position within the district carries a different role and is even challenging to say the least. However, your attention to detail and ability to foresee as well as follow through with a plan of action is greatly appreciated especially during times of extreme pressure. As we move into the next phase while readying ourselves for the future, I would like to encourage each of you to hold fast and to watch the video, “The Blue Print To Life” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00kT9lpBOBw As a district, I ask that you share and encourage your faculty and staff to watch such life changing video, as well as encourage the faculty to allow time for students to watch this two minutes and fourteen second video.
 
I, once again, would like to congratulate you for such a wonderful job and wish to see an increase continue as we, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “...Keep Moving”.
 
Very Grateful,
Amos James, Jr., Board President
