Bob Russell,

Principal, Solano Middle School

In response to the “Closing the gap” article, (Feb. 2) featuring efforts to close the student achievement gap at our school, I want to thank the event’s participants and planners:

Dr. Ramona Bishop for both presenting a stirring achievement gap message, and then remaining for a full two hours to conclude the event with us; Assistant Superintendent Mel Jordan for his presentation, along with Vice Principal Fetters, regarding, “De-Escalation Techniques”; Christal Watts, president of the Vallejo City Unified School District teachers union, for her presentation of the achievement gap from the perspective of district teachers; Mark Deweerdt, staff consultant for Vallejo, California Teacher’s Association for his presentation encouraging unity between the district, sites and the community as we work togehter to close the gap.
