I have some cheese to go with your whine
You soumd like a welfare loser
I might take your point of view, when they stop sending you your welfare check, free heat, free rent, and free food. You are most likely one of the early starters that got on the dole at 18 and never worked a day in your life, sat around smoking and drinking all day. The teacher have to put up with your window licking offspring and they don't get paid enough for that

This thing called Panther Valley is supported by the pensioned elderly and the handful of working poor. It's time to consider merging the district with a wider tax base. It is no longer affordable for those who support it.

The Coaldale Council stated it well in laying off the police. Lansford should be next - the state needs to take over that town.

The Valley cannot continue as is.

You don't work for the school and you're full of crap.
The school offered 3% over 3 years. No raise the first year and 1.5% the last 2 years. The teachers wanted a raise in the first year, since they agreed to a pay freeze last year. At no time was 12% even mentioned. The teacher can't strike they have a no strike clause in their contract. You can't even name who the teachers and rep are doing the negotiations. Too bad you don't know what goes on in the meetings and I do

Mr. JF, Mr.TG, Mr. JS. Need more and I do work at the school, but not for the school, yes the offer was made by the board of 2.5% over 3 Yrs . The first yr being retroactive for the pay freeze. The board was also asking for some changes to the teachers health care package. Union neg team turned that down too!

I hope the board takes a hard stand with the teachers

I also heard talk from the past budget meeting that most of the board is in favor of NO tax increase, that makes 3yrs in a row with no increase , that's NEVER happened in the history of Panther Valley. This board is doing a GREAT job

How could a maintenance person not work for the school?
I guess you don't have a very good source

You're going to have to stop listening to that drunk, because they're wrong. My source let me see the video from the school's security system and it was one of the bus drivers listening in on the conversation, along with one of the HS custodians. The custodian wouldn't have a reason to bash anything the teachers get, since they'd stand a good chance of getting a similar raise in their contract. There is less then half a dozen bus drivers that hang out in the building before dismissal, so if you have half a brain you'd know who it is.
