Vail Daily letter: Not a fan of schools chief

Re: Smyser a finalist for superintendent job in Poudre School District.

Eagle County School District Superintendent Sandra Smyser, she of the $185,000-plus salary, is interested in the same position in northern Colorado? After reducing staffs districtwide, as well as going to a semester system in the high schools (which effectively adds many students and hours to already taxed teachers), she took her bonus and raise and is now considering blessing another district with her presence.

Let’s hope she is successful in her endeavors. Lord knows, a quarter of a million bucks per year goes much further on the Front Range.

Good luck, Sandra!
