    Terri,

    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
    something?!?

    I am still wondering...I hope you can enlighten me...and others.
