Caldwell says, “This district is embodied by the most caring and innovative people I have ever seen in a public school system.

Some teachers even purchase snacks for their students. Someone outside the education system may believe the school district should supply many of the items teachers purchase. Unfortunately, due to a slim state education budget, that’s just not feasible.
