U-CF district needs thorough report on non-residents attending schools

Letter to the Editor:

At the Unionville-Chadds Ford School Board's work session on Monday, March 10, it was reported that superintendent Dr. John Sanville had privately discussed the situation of non-residents who were attending our schools. The board was satisfied with the explanation of this situation.

After three and a half months of raising the possibility of out-of-district students attending our schools and enduring several stalling techniques by Dr. Sanville, I was finally advised in early 2014 by our superintendent that the information I requested was beyond what is required of public agencies. He declined outright to provide the information that I had requested.

The one bright development was that the school board has contracted with the Chester County Intermediate Unit to investigate this situation. I hope the public receives a complete, thorough, and honest report. This investigation must not be another white-washing of this serious situation. Hopefully, it will be completed by the end of April, which would be six months after it was first requested.
