In response to Lance Pinkham's letter, the Fountain Valley School District Board of Trustees is indeed aware of the concerns of some of our district's parents who reside in Huntington Beach ("Unification may be good for few, but not for everyone," April 26). Our recent parent survey indicated that support for unification is less strong in the Huntington Beach neighborhoods because of issues raised in Pinkham's letter. However, in those same areas, parents have indicated that their support grows knowing the Fountain Valley School District would actively pursue an inter-district agreement with the Huntington Beach Union High School District.
