Marion Ginopolis wants community to come together

February 23, 2011 - Open letter to the Lake Orion Community: (Written prior to knowing the result of the LO School Bond Election.)

The Lake Orion School Bond Election has had an unfortunate and divisive impact on the Lake Orion community and it is time to put aside our differences and move forward together.

Regardless of the outcome of the election, we have many challenges ahead.

The first of these challenges is to continue to provide quality educational programs and opportunities for our students with a net loss to Lake Orion Schools of over $5.5 million proposed in Governor Snyder's projected budget. At the same time, we are required to adhere to increasing federal/state mandates and reporting requirements.

The second, and more important, challenge is to reexamine the way we conduct the "business" of public education so that we are preparing 21stcentury students to become thoughtful neighbors, healthy consumers, responsible business owners and educated future leaders.

We can only do this with a unified community willing to focus on collectively determining what's in the best interest of all of our children to ensure they are prepared for their future.

I have agreed to remain as Superintendent of Lake Orion Schools for two years because I'm up tothe challenge.

Let's put our individual interests aside and work together to strengthen our community and redefine education in Lake Orion Community Schools.

Marion Ginopolis

Interim Superintendent,

Lake Orion Community Schools
