Letter to editor: Make sure your help goes where it’s needed

I read the Sentinel every week. Back in 2012 when the school board was trying to float the last bond issue I read a guest commentary, submitted by our esteemed school board leader, outlining the dire need for passage of the bond. Listed as a top priority was replacing the aging administration facility. (Read his office facility).

I live in Ramona, I know the administration building is old, but so are most of our schools, with the exception of our newest elementary school, which was more expensive due to the fact we had to seize the land through eminent domain. Now we’re all reading about low attendance and surplus land. Clearly the management of our schools has been a lesson in what not to do.

The good news is a group of citizens has formed to take matters into their own hands. Friends of Ramona Unified Schools is raising funds to do what the school board won’t and that is put our students and teachers first. You can help by donating to FORUS, and your donation will go directly to repairing school facilities. You can find canisters about town or send your donation to FORUS, 1003 6th Street, Ramona, CA 92065..

There are many ways you can support the schools and students of Ramona directly. I encourage you to make the effort to find a way to help that ensures your help goes where it is truly needed.
