Members of the Rotary Club of Salisbury tonight heard a bleak update on the status of the 15,000-students Wicomico County government schools from Superintendent Dr. Micah Stauffer.  He spoke about the school system's many budget difficulties; the growing number of non-English speaking students; the challenges from unruly and misbehaving students, particularly in the early grades; teacher retention and recruitment, and other issues.
 
 
Despite the opportunities facing the Wicomico County Board of Education, the students, and the employees, Dr. Stauffer said progress is being made.  It was an enlightening and for many members an eye opening description of the local school system.
