"...Avey became active during the pandemic when he created the advocacy group San Juan Parents Association in response to the school closures. He said that children, including his three elementary-school-aged children, felt deeply decisions made by the school board. Four of the five trustees do not have students in the district.
"Avey wants to see more transparency from board members.
“'School districts are defined by thousands of small decisions, and rarely do we see big decisions come to the board,” he said. “And that’s why we missed it. We weren’t paying attention to the thousands of small decisions that came in the past decade.'”
