High School is an incredibly important period of life. It influences your social, academic, and personal life for four years, and prepares you for college and a career. This is the reason County Prep High School is my school of choice.

These are great attributes for any organization to possess, which is why I chose to become a part of the Chesapeake Public School.

Communication within the Westside School District No. 5 between the school district and the communities and families that it serves is a very dynamic process. I talked with district administrators, community members, researched pertinent information in the Arkansas State University library, and various governmental online sources and found very helpful information to include in this sociological inventory.

There were a couple information sessions to reach out to Montgomery county residents to inform, and consult them on the programs and budgets of the County’s public school and the college. Montgomery County Council Education Committee Chair, Craig Rice, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent, Jack Smith, and Montgomery College President DeRionne Pollard graced the information session. I appreciated their effort to seek input from the public who will be receiving the education and it also show transparency of the whole process. Before the hearing, I had little to no knowledge of how the school (Montgomery College) got its funding and how reliant it was on the county and state. Council member Rice gave a speech outlining the budget priorities that were established by the Board of Education.

There are approximately 300 children enrolled in California Elementary School under the age of eight. These 300 would have to find some alternative to school on Fridays if the Moniteau County R-1 School District’s schedule changed from a five day week to a four day week. Additionally student involvement and safety would suffer. Changing the Moniteau County R-1 School district’s schedule to a four-day week would be detrimental to students’ safety and involvement in activities.

The events that took place at Washington High Schools have caused a division between the students, teachers and administration. While some support the decision the principal has made to suspend the students for their untasteful talent show performance, others question its effectiveness. Shortly after the suspension, the students began segregating themselves and exchanging racial comments. The situation has escalated out of control and it has become a political one; leaders of the African American community want to discuss the talent show protest and are demanding a meeting with the principal.
