No Open and Transparent Selection Process
There was no open and transparent site selection process for moving the Shady Grove Transportation Depot to the current Blair G. Ewing site. There also wasn’t an open and transparent site selection process for moving the Blair G. Ewing Center (formerly the Mark Twain School) to the English Manor site, a fact that was underscored by comments made by both board members and staff of the Local Board on the night of the November 17th vote on the CIP.

Considering the serious behavioral problems of Ewing Center students, as reported by the Ewing Center site, an open and transparent site selection process is imperative.
