Discussion of a potential all-new digital school in Lodi Unified School District was stopped in its tracks by the board of trustees at Tuesday's meeting.

Trustee George Neely hoped the board would direct Superintendent Cathy Nichols-Washer to create a committee to investigate the idea of creating an all-digital school by the 2013-14 school year.

    And, while we are at it, new digital school? WTH!!!!????? What in the world are you thinking George Neeley? Yes it sounds great and trendy to be opening up a fancy new digital school. but George, we have high school kids that read at the third grade level. We have playing fields at McNair that can't even get watered correctly because our maintenance people cannot supervise the installation of a working irrigation system.
    Schools are literally falling apart. Programs are being cut. Buses cost too much to use for sporting events. Lodi students are raising money to build a track that the district should have built years ago. And, you want a brand new digital school so you can skim the cream of the crop kids off of others school rosters and have something that looks good on paper and serves maybe 2-300 students in this district while over 20,000 go without? George, come back to reality. Please, fund the programs we already have correctly. We should upgrade our technology in all schools. Right now the tech dept, cannot even serve the schools we have properly and you want a total digital high school. Even attendance in this district is supposed to be digital, but this lame district still prints out every attendance sheet from every class and stores it in some giant locker some where. Whatever happened to going paperless. The inept leadership in the tech dept. cannot get it right, teachers wait months to get classroom computers fixed and you want a digital high school? Good Luck.

    A Couple of questions: One why was there no mention of the school board meeting for LUSD, held 6/26. Two, was the supt.'s salary and contract renewed at $215,000 again? If so this is outrageous. She makes more than our governor. And just to rub it in, she gets a car allowance so she can ride around in her Cadillac Escalade while the rest of the people in the district are facing salary cuts and lay offs. Supplies in the libraies and classrooms are bare bones. Schools are in bad need of repair, they are cutting back on sports and buses, and yet we can pay our supt. more than jsut about any district in Northern Calif. and certainly not representative of salaries in this community. This smells like a old dead skunk under the house. Wake up school board, quit drinking the Kool Aid
