Letter to the editor: Open enrollment benefits Foothills
Janni Simner, CFSD parent, authored the following Letter to the Editor in the October issue of Desert Leaf, the Catalina Foothills magazine.
Benefits of Open Enrollment
Nearly have the students in the Foothills school district are open enrolled. They bring state funding with them to CFSD, supporting the excellence the district is known for. They also bring their families to patronize Foothills businesses, strengthening our economy and supporting high property values. Limiting open enrollment would hurt the community. It would slash funding, close schools, and turn our district from one of the strongest in the state to one that's struggling just to survive. School board candidates Amy Krauss, Amy Bhola, and Gina Mehmert fully support CFSD's open enrollment policy.
