To whom this may concern. Building a K-12 new school would be great, providing it is not built in Alma. Doing so would not unify the district — it would pull it further apart.
Doing so would cause more dislike because this is not USD 329 Alma, it is USD 329 Maple Hill, Paxico, Mcfarland and Alma. Alma has never lost a school, has never had to bus young children down the road. They get to keep it all.
I say yes to a new school, but put it away from any one town. Look at all the other districts around us. Rock Creek is out away from any one town, Sante Fe Trail is out away from any one town, Mission Valley is out away from any one town, Northern Heights is out from any one town. Let’s do the same. It’s time to stop being selfish and put the school out in the center of all the towns.
Again this is not USD 329 Alma. It is USD 329 Maple Hill, Paxico, McFarland and Alma. Let’s do the right thing this time.
