School Board To Dedicate Former Headlands Elementary To Jacqueline Hoynes Tonight

The ceremony for the former superintendent will be before the Mentor Schools Board of Education meeting

The Mentor Schools Board of Education will rededicate the former Headlands Elementary building as the Dr. Jacqueline A. Hoynes School in honor of the district's former superintendent at 6:30 p.m. today.

The board previously announced it would be renaming the building in Hoynes' honor in May.

It was Hoynes who advocated for and oversaw the addition of CARES facility to the district.

She retired at the end of the 2011-2012 school year.

The ceremony will be followed by the board's usual monthly meeting at 7 p.m.

At the meeting:

  • the board will congralate the Mentor High School's majorettes, who won a national championship.

The complete agenda for the Board's meeting can be found on the Mentor Schools web site.

I do not understand why this practice is necessary. She showed up and did her job, what has she done that justifies renaming this school? Wasn't she the one who refused to step down over the huge budget deficit in 2004 or 2005? How many schools have closed and how many jobs have been cut? http://mentor.patch.com/articles/mentor-schools-superintendent-talks-about-staff-cuts-at-board-meeting . I get some of that is economy related, but why should we be naming a school after her?
