Cindy Ross took up miles and miles of space on NextDoor railing unrelentingly about fantasy connections between RVC and the evils of Waldorf….Now, thanks to Stephen Pringle and Rick Bagley, Waldorf is being courted. Where’s Cindy? I guess as long as it might have a negative impact on RVC and it’s long term RVSD teachers of record, it’s all hunky dory handing over the public commons to create a safe harbor to pagan rituals and anthroposophy.

Except that is not true. Not one bit of evidence to show that RVSD will do anything with Heartwood.

From 10/23/18 RVSD board agenda: Presentation by Heartwood Educational Collaborative (Approx. 45 mins.) Representatives from the Heartwood Educational Collaborative requested an opportunity to introduce themselves to the Board and community, share their story and present their ideas and thinking regarding possible future directions for their program. This is an information item only. No recommendation is being proposed or made by staff. It should also be noted that at the request of Heartwood representatives, RVSD and Heartwood officials have met informally to learn and understand more about the range of programs and services offered by RVSD and Heartwood. There have been… Read more »

Some folks are just addicted to feeling offended and outraged, and making sure everyone knows it.

Too bad when Bagley showed up he didn’t meet formally or informally with MAP families and staff to “learn and understand more about the range of programs and services offered.” Mighta been instructive but guess he was fully briefed by his hiring committee on how they were “more trouble than they were worth” sight unseen.

Heartwood reps have been given more opportunity to discuss with district leadership their ideas for forming a charter school than MAP, a group with two decades of history within the district, was ever given. Despite many requests from MAP teachers and parents. Sad.

Heartwood has approached the district differently, wouldn’t you agree? Respectfully and open minded? Asking instead of demanding? Trying to build a consensus through conversation? Kind of like the way Novato Charter approached their district?

Love when people re-invent history. On the first front, Stand mouthpiece Pringle laid the groundwork with his buddy Bagley and Heartwood’s founder and tried to broker a deal. If RVC wasn’t in the mix to try to screw, there’d have been no conversations. And Novato Charter was initially met with the same kind of resistance and community confabulations and history. They just went about exerting their legal entitlements and the district behaved as a legal entity should. Eventually everyone just settled down, went about their business and they earth did not stop spinning. From their website: “The impetus for the… Read more »

Anyone familiar with how RVC got started knows that the MAP parents and teachers tried and tried to get the school board to have a conversation about MAP’s future–could MAP expand to fulfill demand? could MAP relocate to another campus to avoid conflicts at Manor? would the district be interested in a conversation about the possibility of MAP becoming a charter school? These folks WERE respectful and open minded. They asked repeatedly for dialogue, but the district showed no interest. Stand’s narrative is that MAP/RVC has been “demanding” and “litigious” but district leadership has just not been willing to try… Read more »

Interesting. What is the district afraid of? What is the harm in having a conversation. It may come to nothing, but you never know. How awesome would it be if RVC and RVSD could come up with a creative solution so that all kids (and adults) in this community could thrive?

That would be possible if the mutual goal was collaborative problem solving, but unfortunately, RVSD admin and board are in win/lose mode and unless that changes, they will not willingly engage in any effort that involves mutual compromise.
