Todd’s Note: The “frontier” was conquered a long time ago. Some of you might say that the frontier could never be conquered, but just explored.

I remember seeing a lot of posts on Facebook about this district right after Sandy Hook. The other superintendent, Kelly Bagget, of Levelland ISD, didn’t waste time coming back from the Christmas break in January to get a committee together to discuss and research the possibility of doing this.
