The APS Cheating Scandall is costing the system and US $600,00.00 per month. I bet you could retain teachers and custodians with the millions lost on such illegal and unethical conduct. I bet the system is quickly running out of $$. You think? Ethical and honest employees and the tax payers have lost all trust - no matter what you recommend in the future. You tried to distract us with all the chaos of the rezoning... Nice try! We have witnessed the closing and moving of schools in the past. Numerous schools in the past have been updated, added-on-to, only to be closed a year later. Please add poor planning, poor decision making and overall lack of irresponisibility. Our kids and our communities pay the highest price. Not many students will succeed despite their education in APS. One has to work very hard, over a long period of time, to accomplish so little with millions of our $$$$. Please get it together, for once. APS parent and grandparent
