Nampa’s Superintendent of Schools has resigned.
I’m very concerned that our Board may appoint Assistant Superintendent, Greg Russell. Greg stood up in front of the Board and community and announced in spring of 2021 that SEL WOULD BE THE 10 YEAR FOCUS FOR THE NAMPA SCHOOL DISTRICT. He also got on a call with Nikki Zogg from SWDH during a board meeting and discussed K-12 protocol for infectious disease for the entire state. And…Russell also lied to me, right to my face by telling me the Health curriculum adoption was a year behind and they would begin looking at it in summer 2021. Unbeknown to me, the Health Curriculum Adoption Committee was already presented at the February Board Meeting. Greg Russell lied straight to my face!!! It was a Board member that broke the news and shared on social media that the Health Curriculum had already been selected and adopted.
Alright, time for some truth. Hopefully they don’t hide these links…if they do, I have copies. STOP TELLING US SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) IS A LIE AND NOT IN OUR SCHOOLS!!!
