The following letter was sent from Harford County Councilman Joe Woods to Superintendent Robert Tomback and members of the Board of Education. A copy was provided to The Dagger:
President Wolkow, Dr. Tomback, and members of the School Board,
Someone from the school system has made statements that the Harford County Council is responsible for redistricting and has final authority over the issue. At a PTA meeting at YBES; somehow members of the PTA and about 200 parents received information that I’m responsible for an alleged lack of information and lack of the community involvement that your system has been providing. I expect an official statement from the school board correcting this misinformation within 24 hours.
I hope that the reports of no community involvement or input in this redistricting process are false. Furthermore, I expect every constituent to have their voices heard before any final votes. It is also critical that every Harford County constituent those with and without children are informed of the changes to the school boundaries.
Thank you for your attention to this issue,
