A flyer was shared with me relating to redistricting happening with the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS). I even read that this may have been illegally placed inside a mailbox (don’t do that folks). Here is the full flyer:
I am not sure if this is the first flyer stating this type of information this time around with redistricting…but my guess is it will not be the last one during this process. Some of the thoughts I had when I read it:
- Advocacy for something you believe in is good…but do it the right way and always tell the truth.
- The statements relating to home values and quality of education are concerning. Long Reach High is a great school and making those assumptions about it is hurtful to our community. For some background…my kid graduated from Long Reach and she loved it there and I was also very happy with the school.
- I was happy (and surprised) to see names and phone numbers on the bottom of this flyer. Usually these go out anonymously….so that is a nice change. Not a good idea if the flyers are being placed illegally…but nice to know who is actually advocating for a topic shared in this way. (Article update – I covered up the names and phones numbers at the requests by some readers of the article)
Be sure to check out the HCPSS 2019 Feasibility Study Report to learn more about the proposed plans…and then be sure to engage in the process.
