Gina is awesome, not giving her tenure is an insult to the community. the school board and superintendent should be ashamed.

Gina Kraus deserves tenure and the community deserves Gina Kraus. The community spoke the other night and I hope the superintendent and the Board heard our message. When someone this exceptional is working with our students, teachers and parents, why is the any doubt about her?
