to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
To the Voters of District #242
On May 17, 2011, you will be asked to vote for or against the proposed
levy of $395,000 asked for by our School Board.
Do you remember the years when our School Districts were under local
control with NO State or Federal Mandates?? Those were the good times!
The Prairie School District is not surprised with our state superintendentís
plan of The Students Come First. Purpose of the plan is to promote opportunity
for students to excel and advance and to provide college opportunities
for our high school students. Our school has many opportunities for students
to take online courses. Numbers show that Prairie students are taking advantage
of this opportunity already. Business is telling our kids that they need
to be able to communicate with one another and work together. This is a
part of education that we canít afford to lose.

Della Gehring, 962-7721; Pat Alfrey, 962-7230; Lynn Guyer, 962-2348; Gus
