Tips for sending a successful email/making phone calls.

When in communication with Superintendent Greg Baker, concerned citizens have been met with non-communication styles that are meant to end or prolong discourse. To help avoid these, try the following:

  • Read the info document
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Gpmn6jJSyx2wE3cXKfy7FZ0UJ2ffcZBs/view?usp=sharing
     

  • Chose a point from the document about how police in our schools is harmful to children of color and ask them how they respond. When they respond, ask yourself these questions:
     

    • Did they answer the question, or "dodge" the question?
       

    • Did their response actually make reference to the the information you sited or was it a general response?
       

    • Did their answer have site-able evidence to back it up, or was it an opinion, anecdotal ,or vauge? "I've heard many people of color express good feelings toward the police"
       

    • Do you feel like your concern was heard?
       

    • Do you feel like the response to your specific concern was genuine, or do you feel like it was copy/pasted from another email or a pre-written statement?
       

  • If your question is not answered directly, point it out, and ask again to be responded to directly
     

  • Remember;

    • The school board's purpose is to field community concerns and to "hold the district accountable for results"
       

    • Superintendent Greg Baker is a public servant who is paid $298,000 a year by you, the taxpayer. He can afford to give you his time; you already paid for it and deserve it.
