Looks like a huge task Aleisa already has; our needs won't get swallowed up
in there somewhere I pray?  Seem to me that that would be expecting too much
of one person; considering all the many needs of all of us coming all
together like that?
Some: might surely go lacking some possibly necessary attention as it is in
this specific field of blindness and related areas?  I would think blindness
would require more specificity and often is or can be matters of urgency and
require dire training in getting all the many needs amply met!
I certainly hope needs are being met while here in the interim; how long
will it last?

Bennett: New Blind Services Director a Priority
"It's near the top of my priority list."
Those words are from Florida's new Education Commissioner Tony Bennett about
a new Blind Services director.
In his first week on the job, Bennett says he met with interim Blind
Services Director
Aleisa McKinlay.
McKinlay is also the Vocational Rehabilitation Services Director.
Both divisions are part of the Department of Education.
Bennett says he's had a short discussion with McKinlay.
"We're very excited about the work we believe she can do," said Bennett.
"But again,
we are sensitive to the fact we want to make sure we have all the components
in place
to make sure all the divisions of the department run smoothly," he said.
McKinlay was named interim director last month.
She took over for Joyce Hildreth.
Hildreth resigned in the wake of a services contract scandal.
One other DOE employee resigned and two others were fired.
