    New leadership is capable of identifying and funding change. The majority of the people are truly passionate and committed to what they do. These people want to make a difference in K-12 education.

    Underfunded in both compensation and infrastructure. The new leadership is working hard to advance the maturity and stability of the organization.

    Stay committed to getting the funding needed to right the ship. You have done this in the past so just do it again because you know how crucial it is to the overall operation.
