LETTERS: South Waltoners speak out

Title XLVII, Chapter 1001:  “Duties and responsibilities of district school superintendent . . . shall perform all tasks necessary to make sound recommendations, nominations, proposals and reports required by law to be enacted upon by the district school board. . . It shall be presumed that . . . the recommendations, nominations, and proposals required of the district superintendent were not contrary to the action taken by the district school board in such matters.”

Look at what the statutes say about school boards.

“The School Board shall require . . .

(1) minutes and records to be kept . . .

(2) control property . . .
