Go Alex! Let the students weigh in on this issue. Well done!
"I am a resident and taxpayer living on Marco Island and would like to express my opinion OPPOSING a charter high school on Marco Island for the following reasons:
• Very little support for this project by the people who live on the island Marco Island is a retirement community• No need for a high school on the island - this increases overall cost A local private high school exists already and is underutilized A fine school only 20 minutes away – Lely• No place to put a high school - there is just no way to fit a school on the island Tract K is too small and has active nesting eagles"Force fitting" a high school on the island would be inefficient and disruptive to the community• Decrease in safety by bussing additional children to Marco from the Naples area• An underutilized asset when many children elect to stay at Lely Marco children who stay at Lely Naples children who do not elect to commute to Marco
A charter school is intended to help disadvantaged communities - not upscale white communities. A better idea would be to provide added resources to establish Lely as a charter high school. Please DO NOT provide support to establishing a charter high school on Marco Island"
