Skiatook board seeks fresh start, drops attorney Doug Mann

Taxpayers hopeful Skiatook starts a trend.

The Tulsa World reported, "Monday, the [Skiatook school] board also voted 3-2 to seek a new law firm for Skiatook Public Schools, which is now represented by Rosenstein, Fist & Ringold. Attorney Matt Ballard appeared Monday on behalf of the firm. The legal face of the district had been John Priddy and Doug Mann.

"In a grand jury report released June 25, panelists said that it would 'serve the best interests of the district and community to hire a new attorney who can assist the board in being more open and communicative to the public.'"

I think Jenks, Union, Broken Arrow and Bixby school boards should also drop attorney Doug Mann and seek new legal representation. These school boards and their lawyer should have been "more open and communicative" to the parents that they were planning to ignore House Bill 3393, the Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program Act. Instead they waited for parents to transfer their children to approved private schools and then sprung the trap. And trapped is how many of these families feel.
