Crcknup, Our school board has hired some real dandys to work for us. Mr. Dodson is one of them as is Myron Graber and in my opinion now Brian Mitchell. No one is too important that they can't be let go. Look what Columbia did. They fired their superintendant a couple of years ago. They probably also got rid of some board members. These are our tax dollars they are playing with and we have a right to voice our opinion. As far as Dodson is concerned just ask Ashland school district why he left. Hallsville as I understand was glad to see him go. For him to call you a helicopter Mom or any other name is not acceptable. Go to .ratemyteachers.com/jeff-dodson/845468-t and see if this reminds you of him. Also check out facebook.com/jcschooltax.
mikemojc please contact us at facebook.com/jcschooltax. We agree with you.
Hey Marc quite drinking their kool aid. You sound just like them. You probably agree with the hiring of Graber also that prompted 19 teachers to leave after just one school year of his pitiful leadership as principal. Remember our school board looked far and wide to find Pemberton's replacement. They couldn't promote from within because thought they needed new blood. Look what it got us. Look what they did with him the following year. They promoted him to the admin office. They are pathetic. They gave Mitchell a $9600.00 dollor raise which the news tribune denounced as excessive. Stop it.
Jc is not overcrowded. It's not even close to design capacity per Luther in past articles. Get your facts straight. Simonsen is the problem. By the way when this 800+ class gets to the high school how much of a chance will your kid have a shot at starting on one of the athletic teams or what ever. Competition will be strong with that many kids competing for a spot. Maybe your kid won't even try out because he or she knows the competition is more than they can handle. There won't be 7 different football teams or track teams or baseball or softball or speach teams. What is the maximum capacity of this Taj Mahal. If your in love with academies fine but this town needs two separate schools. Don't ask us to pay for something we do not believe in. Two separate schools would give more opportunities to the students. Columbia is building their third high school people. If we really want to get it right we need two schools. The second school doesn't need to be a Taj Mahal. How big is too big? Remember, when the catholic schools graduate their eighth grade each year not all of them attend Helias. That adds even more kids to that 800 plus class. Think about it! The voters will decide, not the teachers, Mitchell , the country club school board, Randy Allen and the chamber because we pay the bills through property taxes. By the way if you rent expect your rent to increase because most landlords aren't going to absorb the tax increase.
They have their agenda not the people's agenda. Check out this sight. facebook.com/jcschooltax
Our country club school board refuses to consider a second high school because they think it will divide the community and it would mess up their academy building plans. Columbia is building their third high school. Make sure you read each posting completely by clicking read more. There are comments you need to see and links. Pass it on.
