To the editor: The Fairbanks North Star Borough School District has announced more cuts, with hopes that they are avoiding any cuts that will negatively impact students.
If you were to place photographs of every staff member from my elementary school in front of me, without labels, the one I’d be most likely to recognize probably would be Mr. Kelly, the daytime janitor.
After that, the most memorable probably would be my sixth-grade teacher, followed by the other sixth-grade teacher (I went to his class for math), followed by a whole lot of, “Who the heck are these people?”
The district might want to reconsider what sorts of cuts impact students. I suggest to them, respectfully, that students are unlikely to know anyone in human resources and other district-level administrative positions that remain uncut.
