I am pleased to see that Karen Campbell has decided to seek election to the School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors. She and Bill Richards have put a great deal of effort into the district’s well-thought out long-range plan. With her back on the board she will be able to take the leadership role during the implementation stage. She should also be able to provide leadership as the district reviews its special education policy. I’m aware of the many current challenges facing the board, but at the same time with many changes taking place in education, it’s important to lay out a path to future.
