I created this "Ideas for Cape Schools" forum as a vehicle that would enable all the stakeholders in our Cape Elizabeth Maine school district (parents, students, teachers, administrators, taxpayers, outside experts, interested members from other communities etc.) to exchange ideas and express opinions about how we might work together to improve our school system.
Once you join the forum, feel free to reply to posts on any topic or create a new topic (related to our Cape schools) that you feel others might be interested in.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion
Please treat this discussion forum with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.
These are not hard and fast rules, merely aids to the human judgment of our community. Use these guidelines to keep this a clean, well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.
Improve the Discussion
Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.
The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
One way to improve the discussion is by discovering ones that are already happening. Please spend some time browsing the topics here before replying or starting your own, and you’ll have a better chance of meeting others who share your interests.
Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree
You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But, remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:
•Ad hominem attacks.
•Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content.
Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
