The "supply" money was allocated from the state for supplies like paper. If that money isnt spent on supplies, it has to be sent back to the state. So why were the PTO's required to be out raising money for supplies when the local board didnt even bother to buy the supplies out of available funds? It had NOTHING top do with teacher lay offs. They screw up. Big time. Idiots! Vote them out.

Our principal reported to us in the PTA that last year they were given the heads up from the county office to spend their allotments and "sock it away" for the following year because the cuts were going to be severe. Our principal did as advised, and our PTA did not spend any monies on supplies. Perhaps instead of villifying the school board members you should be looking at the various principals for not acting on good advice.

I am just saying that Maleah Haas has a deep seeded grudge against Teresa Branch. She is not even running against Teresa Branch but Darrell Pennell. He is the one she should be worried about....
We do not need anyone as unstable as Maleah Haas on the school board!!!!!

VOTE for Teresa Branch and Darrell Pennell!!!!

Based on what I have seen of Haas, I believe this to be true, as well. I feel we do NOT need her kind of negativity in this county.

I want people on the board who want to implement positive and constructive policies... not someone who is driven by her own sense of "getting back."

Haas is only running because she wants a new william lenoir built. I think a school board member should not represent only one area of the county. If Haas wins all she will work for is a new william lenoir.

No ridiculousness at all because these 4 guys are the best choices all the others aint worth a dang including Branch and Haas. It goes double for the sitting boe members.

Vote Woodie, Wilson, Sharrad, and Pennell they will make sure no 20 million dollar schools get built

Vote for that line up and you can just about say public education in Caldwell county will be in the hands of those who care less about public education. I will exempt Mr. Pennell from this remark as he served a long career in the school system with distinction.

Yes, but sometimes the voters make poor choices. Remember, they voted LaBrose on school board. Nothing against him personally, but he's nowhere near qualified.

Yes, actually, she did tell me her child deselected from the program. You seem to be under the impression that her child is the only one who ever deselected from the program. If so, your impression is incorrect.
YOU James, are the person who is spewing negativity. YOU James, are the one who would like everyone to think this is a "grudge" and not an issue that lies with the execution of the EC. YOU James are the one who says in one post that you "hate" negative campaigning, but then in other posts contribute vehemently to the negativity. YOU James, are the one who is running all over Topix making negative statement about Maleah Haas. She did NOT start this fight, nor is she running a negative campaign. YOU James, are the one who is making it a negative issue.
49% college graduation rate is NOT acceptable. STOP trying to convince me that it is acceptable. If YOU James don't want to vote for Maleah Haas, then don't vote for her. But STOP with this nonsense that she is running a negative campaign. She has every right to ask for a failing program (my words--"failing"--be cause 49% is not a passing grade) to improve.
I seriously DOUBT you have EVER spoken to Maleah regarding her stance on the Early College--because you would not be on here spewing LIES if you had.
Your an idoit to think that this school is failing.... their children are actually ALL graduating high school.. UHMMMMMM I believe YALLL should put a little more focus on improving the other high school, because this school IS SECOND TO NONE in caldwell county!!!!!!!!! South Caldwell, Hibriten, West Caldwell, and the middle college cannot beat the EARLY COLLEGE.... AND come on this is this school FIRST graduating class!!!!!!! They need time to iron out the bumps in the road... GIVE THEM A BREAK!!!!! and if you dont have a first hand experience with the school then YOU HAVE NO ROOM TO JUDGE THEM!!!!!!!!!

Yes. FACTS have a strange way of bringing out the truth.

I see this evening that Pennell is ahead of Haas by a substantial margin. I suppose the people of this county were able to see through her, as well.

Only because of the SMEAR campaign of LIES that Branch ran against her. You people are PATHETIC. 49% is successful? In what world?

The people of Caldwell County came out and voted for the best! The reason Teresa Branch won is because she has a proven track record and the reason Haas lost is because she chose to focus only on one issue the Early College. The students will be graduating with a high school diploma and some have exceeded that and will have a degree!!! Get the facts! Haas may have had other things to say but the people voting for her focused on one issue and that is why she lost BIG!!!

Teresa Branch ran no SMEAR campaign. I don't believe I ever received a card from her campaign that mentioned Maleah Haas at all. I did not hear her mention Haas name at all or any thing Haas is or was connected to. However, Maleah Haas did pass out flyers/propaganda concerning the Early College. To her misfortune, she picked the wrong platform. She ran a campaign against a school with too many positives to list. With a 2 to 1 vote for Darrel Pennel, I believe the county agrees.

And by the way....No One at the Early college has said that 49% is successful. According to many that work there, adjustments are made continuously from evaluating, reflecting, and identifying ways to make students more successful. Take the time to ask those that are actually involved in the school and find the TRUTH!! However, it should be pointed out, there are more successes in this graduating class than failures. Unfortunately, Haas decided not to share those numbers...even though she received them when SHE requested them. Ask her about the other numbers...and why she conveniently chose not to put those on her campaign material.

HAAS is the one that ran because she had a grudge and the ONLY smears I heard... CAME FROM HER.

By the way, she's still got a whole lot of signs in Granite Falls. If any of you know her, you might want to tell her to come get them if she wants them.
