My response:

Foothill's administration ran off most of the folks who were technology leaders. The teachers either retired or left the district. Dave Middleton is one of the rare exceptions who still displays that kind of leadership.

Compare the websites of their two libraries and you'll see what I mean:

Foothill High is second-rate and likes it that way.

FOOTHILL is a FIRST RATE HIGH SCHOOL. The students are cool, the teachers are cool, and you've been ANGRY about something for years "Your Neighbor".

"FOOTHILL is a FIRST RATE HIGH SCHOOL."

Says the guy and resident P-Weekly troll who doesn't have kids at Foothill and lives in Livermore. I'm sure compared to the Livermore schools, Foothill looks great. By Pleasanton standards, second rate.

During the last accreditation cycle, Foothill was only reaccredited for three years while Amador was reaccredited for six years. It was the first time in a long time that Foothill didn't get a slam dunk for six years and is symptomatic of the school's decline.

By the way, if you have to type ALL IN CAPS to make your point--it proves you can't make your point.

It's great that they've been supporting educators for so many years now. Sadly not all school employees are this lucky. Today teaching is way too underestimated and whenever something happens in our country it affects them and their welfare immediately. I know several talented educators who started to teach with the help of Web Link instead of common lessons. I fairly understand them, because it's really hard to handle teenagers today. You are responsible for so many things while getting minuscule salary. Anyway, it's a pleasure to read that teachers are still respected at least somewhere. Amy
