Here is what I have learned:
In the past three
years, under Van Zantís leadership Clay Schools have seen high
school graduation increase by 9.5% and for the first time in Clay history
Clay Schools are above the national average.
His high school redesign into the Academics of Clay are working and we are
seeing tremendous improvements across all measures. Lastly, Clay Schools
have become fiscally sound again by getting the budget back to a state
mandated 3% fund balance.
Charlie Van Zantís opponent, Addison
Davis, is an administrator from the Duval county school district and he
has vowed to take away citizenís right to elect their superintendent by
making it an appointed position. Clay voters rejected an appointed
superintendent by a resounding 72% in a previous election, but they just
must have it their way.
We donít need Duval county school policy, with all its problems, seeping
into Clay County.
Our current system is not only not broken, but certainly donít need fixed.
So please we need to re-elect Charlie Van Zant as Superintendent
