Letter to the Editor: Additional information sought from school board

To the Editor:
It would be a very unusual person who would be displeased by the performance of Dare County schools reported to the School Board by acting Superintendent Blackstock on September 13th. Such good performance on the part of students made me wonder what might be the other reason(s) the School Board used to buy out Dr. Farrelly’s contract; seems only fair that the Board would share such information with prospective Superintendent candidates (and the public?). (I am humorously (?) reminded of the first report Dr. Farrelly made to the public in September, 2017 at which he reported the performance of students under Dr. Burgess’ tenure.)
An informed and concerned public must help the local school board carry out its responsibilities, most important of which is hiring the superintendent … are we up to the task??
