On a rainy morning, La Cañada Unified Board President Scott Tracy opens the front door of his Woodleigh Lane house, unique from neighboring homes in that it is below road level and perched atop a stream that cuts a natural course through the backyard and into the surrounding wood. Inside, Tracy takes a seat in a front room. He has been asked to reflect upon his 12 years of service on the school board, which ends next week. On Tuesday night he and fellow board members Joel Peterson and Susan Boyd will transfer their seats to the newly elected David Sagal, Kaitzer Puglia and Dan Jefferies.

In reference to Scott Tracy's June 27 op-ed in the La Cañada Valley Sun I offer the following: The purpose of a charter district is to address the problems the school district is facing, like with Common Core.

We have all heard that our schools are facing unprecedented cuts in the funding they receive from the state. In their April 28 guest column, school board members Joel Peterson and Scott Tracy gave us a snapshot of what to expect if we can’t raise enough funds to offset the $2.4 million in cuts. They also mention that the Task Force is currently conducting an aggressive campaign to educate school families as to the grim reality of our budget cutbacks. To get our schools back to the ideal standards that were established three years ago, we would need to raise $6 million.
