People you need a solid base of information to make rational and good choices for the coming School board elections. Who is running against the standing President and her flunkies on the Board. Has the coming election been suppressed by certain existing Board members? I believe so. I only heard of it from Dr. Rapp. There are puppets of the Superintendent who would like nothing better than to keep the status Quo..especially the legal consul. She must GO TOO! Do your homework people...for the sake of your children, your schools & yourselves.

Dr. Rapp please have four votes, try convincing Joyce to not vote with Lynne. It was a better board when Steve was the president. Let's get Lynne off the board, that puppet is no good for district 130.

This is the same school where the superintendent hired an acquaintance to stand as principal and has also been under restructuring standings with the state. Our children need an administration that is going to put them as their priority. They need to start looking at what is being done wrong and look to the districts that are being successful. Diversity and poverty can not be an excuse and has also been successfully approached by other districts. As a community we must demand more, our property tax bills go up and our property values are going down and our children deserve so much better.... Think about this on election day in April.
Success depends on you. Read your next tax bill and get involved.

The whole mess in District 130 started when L&L's(Lazy Lauk and Loser Lynne). Between these two and Jane really mess up our district. Shame on the board for letting this to continue. Kerr School from the beginning never got a chance to improve because of the policies that were implemented and the people/staff that were placed there. It became worse than the previou staff. The previous staff would of been a better job and never got the opportunity to do so. L&L get the hell out of the district.(OH, take jane with you!)

Is that puppet at Kerr (Principal) still working there? I mean taking up space and not doing anything for the students, staff, and comunity. I am sure he made (LOL) with the help of that bully great changes at Kerr. Parents of Kerr am I wrong or you don't care to speak up, the parents always have the most power but don't get involved. Don't feel satisfy with a ranking of that school.

I guess the Principal is leaving at the end of June 2913. Parents get involved and have a say for the next principal. I hope that bully superintendent does not get an extention on his contract. I hope the Board of Education get it and doesn't extend his contract. This election get rid of the pupppet of president of the board. Get his A_ _ out of the district. Steve, Dr. Rapp, Joyce, and Jill, you have the vote. Get rid of the other three members.

School board member Denise Horton missed the February, March, May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December school board meetings in 2012. If she can't bother to show up for the meetings; she shouldn't be on the board.

Why did all the surrounding districts have common courtesy to cancel school tonight and District 130 and 218 haven't. Are they waiting for tomorrow morning when families will have to rush around making plans for the kids or worse will they have the parents send them to school and then send them home early?

Even if a new board is elected, it will take YEARS to fix the damage done by Lauk and the current board.

Lynn Arendziak has no vested interest in our schools other then self gratification. She need to find a new hobby and stop ruining our educational system!

Remove that no good Lynn Arendziak, she has been a problem along with Jane Blew Healy in letting that current Superintendent ruin our District.

You obviously don't like her. A great person, with a good heart. How do I know??? She coached my daughter and did an all around terrific job. She went above and beyond the call of duty for the children that she worked with. It's amazing how elections always bring out the worst in people. She is passionate about kids and that's what we need, even if you may not like her.

Jacobson has been endorsed by the teachers. He has attended many Board meetings and was the first one to point out the problem with the lack of a reading curriculum. He seems to be all about a focus on academics. He has my vote.

Sorry to say but Lynn Arendziak has been telling her friends that she has it in the bag. Seems allot of School district workers got a little bird singing in their ear that that their jobs will be in jeopardy if Lynn does not win convincingly. What's that about? Anybody else hear this too?

Lynn has to go! Voters vote for any one else. Her time is over and for the last 4 years has done more harm to the district. May the superintendent and her sail away far from district #130, they deserve each other!

Supporters of Lynn send their kids to Saint Walters, they must be so proud and trust her work with District 130. NOT!
