Alicia, there are some interesting facts that can be gleaned from the 37 page directory. A few things that pop out at me are and please excuse my budgetary anal retentiveness, but this is what I do for a living so looking at facts and figures in detail is like a habit for me.

That is perfectly fine to disagree with me.
I am happy it works for you - an employee of the district.
As for being a parent inundated with paperwork with the numbers for
the district, well I have to disagree with you on that.
I read everything that comes home with my son, especially the things
that come from downtown.
95% of the time Paul Ehara's phone # is on it
and the other 1% of the time they tell you to contact your principal.
As for the "average district parent" that is something we should
start a separate thread on. Im curious what an "average district
parent" would be. If you listen to some people, it is people who
complain alot but do nothing.
If you listen to the other people it is hands on parents who are at
their kids site and really involved.
I really don't think there is a face to the "average district
parent" in this district.
But then again, I am just a parent. One who after my internet gets
shut off due to non-payment will be seen at the library when I need
to use the Internet.
