As a principal in the Lodi Unified School District, I want to thank our board members for making the time and effort to visit school sites in order to gain a better understanding of the variety of programs offered to students. Board members, including Mr. Abdallah, have been to Liberty High School to get to know our program and staff. I believe this is a benefit to our school and district.
When the board is considering a policy or other action impacting Liberty, I want to be assured they are knowledgeable about our program. The best way for this to happen is to visit the school. Mr. Abdallah has been very visible at Liberty. He has always acted in a professional and encouraging manner.
Our new board members were elected because this community wants those who are making decisions about our children's education to be hands-on and familiar with what is actually happening in our schools. I appreciate Mr. Abdallah's visits to the sites. They assure me his leadership is not blinded by hearsay, but driven by a desire to understand based on a genuine concern to do what's right for our district, students and employees.
I believe I can speak on behalf of the staff at Liberty to say Mr. Abdallah, and all board members, are welcome to drop in unannounced at any time, and ask any questions about what we do. Liberty has an incredible staff that provides an outstanding educational program. We want our board members to know all about it.
