Open letter to SV School Board

Posted on April 30, 2018 by Sonoma Valley Sun

We, current and former parents/grandparents of students in the Sonoma Valley Unified School District, former teachers/staff, and concerned community members, gather in support of the teachers and the recent statement by the Valley of the Moon Teachers Association. We do not agree nor support the hiring of Socorro Sheils as Superintendent for the Sonoma Unified School District and our children.

Ms. Sheil’s reputation as Superintendent in Santa Rosa raises significant concerns for us. We find the contract that was proposed to Ms. Sheils to be out of line with the District’s recent budget challenges. While class sizes grow and teachers are cut we can not support a superintendent who is willing to ignore the obvious issues facing the District. We ask you, the Sonoma Valley Board of Trustees, to begin a new search process.
