From The Office Of The Mayor
Please be advised that while City of Blue Grass respects the rights of its citizens to exercise their freedom of speech regarding the issue of a proposed West Scott School, the City of Blue Grass takes no official position, neither for or against the proposed school, and will not provide any official comments on this issue.
The City of Blue Grass has maintained a longstanding, warm relationship with the Blue Grass Elementary School and the Davenport Community School District. The City of Blue Grass has been and will continue to be supportive of the Blue Grass Elementary School and the decisions of the Davenport Community School Board. The City of Blue Grass hopes and expects that any decisions regarding school closures only be made after a thorough review and analysis of the factors involved and not be based solely on the statements of a group of private citizens wishing to create their own school district. The City of Blue Grass is willing to meet and engage in meaningful dialogue with the Davenport Community School Board as it moves forward with this process.
