Then, for my own piece of mind, can you answer this question...
What percentage of the present FA teachers are staying?
It just seems hard to imagine that the school could be needing THAT
many teachers...How many new students do you anticipate. Check the
St. Vrain website. They are looking for AT LEAST 11 new teachers
AND a new principal. Let's see...if you need about 15-20 students
per teacher, then you are expecting AT LEAST 165 new
students...Pretty optimistic, I must say! They must have some
public relations/advertising campaign going on...Or, am I missing
I am still wondering...I hope you can enlighten me...and others.
