New Private Forum Originally, we used a free add-on program from a commercial site as the engine for our Forum feature.  We have now developed our own private Forum within our site.  It is only accessible through our site and has no outside commercial advertising.  Please feel free to start or join any online discussion you like here.  However, our viewers would most appreciate topics related to public schools, parenting, local school issues, etc.    As with most online discussion boards, you can feel free to sign in with your own name or under a nickname.
