Tell Me Jim’s Coming Back
I am so saddened by the absence of Jim Chase’s column. For years I have enjoyed his thoughtful and witty prose.
Please tell me he is returning some time soon!
Editor’s note: Jim Chase will be returning to Viewpoints in April.
Urges Yes on S
Although I retired as the principal of Crescenta Valley High School last year, I remain active as a community member to ensure that the education we offer our students is of the highest quality. We have an opportunity to secure the future by supporting Measure S on the April 5th ballot.
Measure S will not increase property taxes; instead, the current property tax rate will continue. Measure S will fund needed projects at each of the 30 schools. A Measure S priority is updating classroom computers and technology. If our community is to provide an education that will prepare our students to live and work in the 21st Century, we must update the technology our students use at school.
Thirteen years ago the community overwhelmingly approved Measure K, which provided the funds for renovation and new construction at our Glendale schools. We built four new buildings at Crescenta Valley High School. However, we were unable to modernize all of our buildings. Work remains to be done throughout the school district. Measure S will continue that work.
It has been an honor to serve the valley students as both a teacher and an administrator for 37 years. Please join me in supporting Measure S.
