How long has the district been out of paper? I have been asking teachers to try to remember. Around a month might be a good guess. No one’s sure, though. We have been bringing in our own paper for quite awhile now. One teacher told me that we had borrowed paper from another district. That’s an interesting rumor anyway. I’m no investigative reporter and I’m not sure how much of my valuable time I want to give to the paper issue, but I do want to make one observation: The same people creating my district’s plans for the future managed to use up all their paper about two months before the end of school, and possibly some weeks before that. This fact does not inspire confidence.
