Superintendent Dr. Stephen Hanke Thanks Dublin Voters

A Message to the Dublin Community…

Submitted by: Stephen Hanke, Ed.D. Superintendent Dublin Unified School District

On behalf of the students and dedicated employees who comprise the Dublin Unified School District, I am honored and humbled to extend the sincerest thank you for your vote of confidence. 

On June 5th when the Dublin community voted "yes" to pass Measure "E", our $99 million school facilities bond, you sent a decisive message of support to every member of our organization.   

Your approval of the $99 million bond will help us complete our plans to fully upgrade facilities across the district and continue to provide technologies that ensure our students are provided the tools necessary for success with 21st century academic content. 

We know that your expectations of our schools are high and include all areas of academics, enrichment and athletic programs, student support and wellness services. I assure you that the members of our Dublin USD team continually strive to meet your expectations.    

Your vote of confidence in our district inspires us to continue learning and improving ourselves, our work and our service to the students of our community.  We believe that strong public schools are one of the single greatest investments that Dublin can make in its future.  

Thank you for investing in our kids, our schools and our future.         

- Stephen Hanke, Ed.D. Superintendent Dublin Unified School District

Funny how you thank the community for investing in kids, when the Dublin School District has just cut the much needed Barton Reading program from it's curriculum. Wasn't that investing in kids with a real need? It did wonders for the student entering Middle School with a second or third grade reading skill. Some that I know came up three grade levels in just two short years. And to top it off, to my knowledge, this program was funded by a grant, not district money. I have always praised the district, as one of the few addressing the child with dyslexia. Without the program, the parents are forced to get private tutors at a price of $50 an hour and on up. In these hard times, many of the children that prospered from the Barton program at Wells, will be left behind. I understand there is a newly proposed program for those with reading dissabilities, but I also understand that it is not going to be used to it's fullest capacity, leaving the child without proper instruction. I hope that the next time you boast how we are investing in our children, you mean all children.
