I want to note for the record that Debra Wright did not attend Friday’s School Board meeting concerning Kathryn LeRoy’s future. I mentioned a report that she would in my previous column. My intent was simply to welcome her and start a dialogue.
Luckily, I was able to exchange email notes personally with Mrs. Wright later in the day. She told me was wasn’t coming and that she would trust the School Board to make the right decision.
I should have updated my column immediately with that information. I did not. For that, I apologize. And I’m correcting it here.
I’m very excited to talk with Mrs. Wright about her ideas for the new superintendent and overall direction of the district. But I wanted to note this for the record.
