    In 2015-2016, teachers are incapable of dealing with the increased number of students. Its past, over-ambitious superintendent who has business background and not a long years of teaching background began many new changes (for the worse), left the school district in 2 years, and the district is in a confused stage and coping with the aftermath quite ineptly. Academic quality obviously has gone down, many parents are making the difficult decision of either moving for a better school district or paying for a private school. This mess will take a long time to get resolved.
