I hope you didn't go to our schools and learn to spell our that way. Take a little pride in yourself and learn how to spell things properly. We are spending a lot of money to dumb down our citizens.

Out of the $18.5M in this issue (which is a NO TAX INCREASE), less than 15% would be spent on the athletic fields. That's somewhere around $15M on infrastructure, technology and transportation. Seems like you don't have to worry. By the way, have you SEEN the football fields lately? Go to Fox, then Seckman, then go see Windsor, Fetsus, DeSoto, Hillsboro and see if you think we're missing something.

Check out my children's elementary art room. There is very little paper, broken crayons, and a huge bag of tp rolls, butter tubs and old christmas cards that she has been begging for. Last year art, music and pe classes got no budget for their curricula- which is state mandated... Have YOU seen the 11 elementary art, music and pe rooms in the district? They are solely lacking the needed supplies and equipment to properly educate the kids do they can grow up to use the football fields. I just want to see ALL programs and facilities benefit.

And books, so students don't have to share books and they will be able to take books home to do home work or study for tests. Right now they have to leave books in classes for the next class. Come on, they're our next leaders. Stop taking from education.

I'm sure the money will be put to good use, district-wide, but we are definitely in need of the new turf field and tracks. Time to catch up with everybody else in the county, except for Herky and Northwest, which haven't yet gotten in step. And really, people, check your spelling before you submit your rants, PLEASE!!!

FYI, this will raise taxes. Do you people think a money fairy will sprinkle 18.5 million dollars over the Fox School district and tax payers will never have to repay any of it? Where do you think this money is coming from??? Look at your personal property and realestate taxes. Look at the portion you are paying for Fox C-6 schools. If this bond is passed, you will continue paying for an additional decade. YOU THE TAX PAYER WILL BE PAYING!!! IE: Tax increase!!!!. how about instead of a tax increase we look at budgeting our money better. How about a Superintendent that makes less than a quater million dollars a year in salary. Do we need to by this Super a $70,000 luxury SUV to drive home every night. Do we need to give her boyfriend (now husband) a six figure a year job? What about her next boy toy? how much we will need to give him? Do we need to pay School board member david palmer's wife a six figuer salary? They say we need several new busses but yet we just bought a travel bus that was the price of 3 busses and dont even use it(we charter busses for trips?).
I can not afford this type of waste with my tax money. I work to hard for my money.
PLEASE vote no for the school bond.

Agree with all said. How many principals and assistants do we really need? Also secretaries? Sorry too many people and overpaid.
I have also been told that when meetings are held, food ordered is wasted. Our school district waste money just like our government. Our taxes are getting out of hand. I know we will pay more taxes. Lies, nothing but lies. I think there is so much hidden, no one really knows. Do the school board members really think we are stupid. So much waste! So now we really need things and have no money. We need some little people to go in and check the books. Waste, waste, waste....that's the problem here. But guess what, it's not their money, so why should they care.

But it will free up other parts of the budget for raises and luxury trips and vehicles and boyfriend salaries.
