West Ada School District is not in chaos. This headline will not sell newspapers. However, that is the truth. Each day, bells across the district ring, teachers teach and students learn. Concerts are given, plays are performed, and sports are played.
West Ada never has been in chaos. After the former superintendent resigned, teachers reported to work and the education process continued without a hitch. Students continued learning during the two weeks when West Ada had no superintendent and during the time there was an interim superintendent. Now there is a new superintendent in place, and guess what? Students continue to learn, and the district is still not in chaos.
I have worked in West Ada as a teacher for 18 years. Our teachers and support staff are responsible for the seamless transitions made over the past few months. Stop saying we can’t function. We can and we are. It is a slap in the face of the 2,000 plus employees of the West Ada School District who do their job everyday to say we are in chaos. We resent being described as chaotic. There is no chaos. West Ada is a great district, and we continue to get better.
