Don't break up a school board that's working

I have been a proud member of the Baker School District 5J staff for 35 years. I've seen many administrations and school boards come and go. I've seen what works and what doesn't. Right now, as a school district, we have a lot of successes: two model schools, we are financially fit, our administration (including district office staff) is leading us to be better teachers, we are on track to tackle the Common Curriculum State Standards in 2015 and our staff members are strong and involved. In addition, we have the Oregon School Employees Association's Classified Employee of the Year for 2012-13, Ma'Lena Wirth AND the Oregon Teacher of the Year, Nanette Lehman!

Our school board is supportive. They are making decisions that keep our district running well. There is no need to recall any of our school board members.

If it isn't broken....
