I purposely stayed out of the discussion because I know there are people at Tri-Valley that wanted David Mouser to get the job. He’s perfect for them since he is a master at keeping bad news a secret.
Since the test scores of students are much higher at Tri-Valley, maybe Mouser can do something to bring them up in District 87. He needs to start with replacing the history curriculum used in the high schools.
This is the FOIA I received from District 87 for high school “social studies”:
That document contains way more “woke” than history.
This is the FOIA I received from Tri Valley:
There is a STARK difference between the two!
I have one reason for wanting Mouser gone. A few years ago the Middle School got paid off. Instead of decreasing the property tax rate, Tri-Valley went on a spending spree – some needed and some to spend the entire windfall. Classrooms at the high school needed work, they had been separated by temporary walls for quite awhile. 70 some percent of voters approved the building plans, I guess Tri-Valley parents don’t mind paying for lavish like an added wing to the high school complete with an auditorium.
The District has 1043 students across 3 schools.
District 87 has over 5000 students across 9 schools and the Bloomington Career Center.
If students at Tri-Valley were brawling in the hallways, it didn’t make the news. I think Dr. Mouser will have a much more difficult job at District 87.
Anybody notice big hires of late already live in Illinois? (Gleason, Tyus, Simington, Mouser, others?)
