Tired of waiting

Dear editor:

I agree with Mr. Ken Grynol’s recent letter to the editor regarding the accountability of the Rainy River District School Board and the missing funds from Fort Frances High School.

In a Nov. 19, 2008 Fort Frances Times article, the chair of the board stated the board had filed an insurance claim for the missing funds and had recovered $260,000 as of that date.

Confidence lacking

Dear editor:

The Oct. 6, 2009 Rainy River District School Board meeting has an amended purchasing policy on its agenda for approval.

The board reviewed and approved the existing policy just last September. What has changed?

Under the proposed policy, these are the changes:

•$1.00-$99,999.99 can be purchased with no board oversight or board notification;

Pale in comparison

Dear editor:

Many have asked what happened to the petition?

The petition and all related material, the returned production order, the four charges and court transcripts relating to the MoE charge at Sturgeon Creek School, and all relevant correspondence with the board were submitted to the minister of education on May 19, 2009.

Ironic

Dear editor:

This letter is in response to the comments attributed to the chairman of the Rainy River District School Board and its director of education in your April 1, 2009 article headlined “Kircher petition gains momentum.”

Abject failure

Dear editor:

Last week, the Town of Fort Frances released the costs and expenses related to the mayor and councilors for public information.

On Feb. 22, 2009, I submitted an e-mail to the Rainy River District School Board requesting detailed budgets of the board and trustee compensation and expenses for the board’s fiscal year ending in August, 2008.

Quite disconcerting

Dear editor:

The following letter was sent to Dan Belluz, chairman of the Rainy River District School Board, and fellow trustees:

Fortunately, no one became ill from the incident at Sturgeon Creek School. Unfortunately, that incident has helped to clarify and illustrate this board’s ability to oversee management.
