This report was submitted to the Plano ISD Board of Trustees in November 1998. A copy was also submitted to Ms. Marilyn Brooks, Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction. Ms. Brooks provided the only official response to this report in an email one week later saying that she had asked Dr. Jim Wohlgehagen and Dr. Priscilla Kimery to contact me. My efforts at trying to open a channel for dialogue proved to be in vain which led me to sign the grievance compliant against PISD with six other families.
