I dont have enough time of day to name all its problems but here is a short list...board members in Reid's pocket, Reid, next in line to Reid and is rude wife, HIRING PROCESS, we need a new AD, someone needs to look at the budget and see we have a car that leaves this town every night- we don't give out of town teachers a car to drive home so why does this guy get one? We also have a bullying problem but we have a couple of employees who who bully so there is another issue that won't get addressed. The list could go on and on but I'll stop there cause NO ONE is gonna do anyting to change anything that's why we aren't ever gonna grow or have any really impact changes in Carlisle...pathetic!

Wow, somebody seems to really have an inside scoop on the school system; would be even better if any of it were true. Amazing how people who think they know everything really know nothing.

Jeff, let me give you a few insider tips to guarantee you a job:
1. Change your mailing address to Harrison County - if you want a job at the Elementary this will increase your chances 100%.
2. Go shopping with Mrs. Allison - approximately all of her friends have secured their jobs that way.
3. Include "I have worked at the bank" on your resume. This is VERY IMPORTANT to the 3 Stooges at the board office. Much more important than any college experience you could ever have. As a matter of fact it's not important to include that on your resume. Just replace it with the number of years you've spent on your knees kissing butt. That's all they really care about.
4. Have your name legally changed to Price, Simons, Jackson or just join any of the Stooges at one of their infamous biker vacations let the wind blow through your hair as you ride along the country side with your 3 besties Buddy up with the good ole boys and you'll be a shoe in for sure. As a matter of fact, you can secure your entire future if you just show a little love. Secure your family's future too. Get everyone a job!
Good luck - keep us posted

I find "No Changes Made" has made some interesting statements. In fact, it is very true that a vehicle is provided for not just one but several employees on a daily basis. These vehicles are used for personal use and driven after school hours and on weekends even. I have seen them on weekends cruising through town. Our taxes and the school's pinched budget provide them. Just think, a beginning teacher makes approximately $35000 in his/her first year. We can't afford to hire even one more that could reduce the student teacher ratio but yet we can afford to find somewhere in that shrinking budget money to allow Mr Reid a vehicle to drive back and forth 20+ miles a day,Ron Allison a vehicle to drive to Bath County everyday 20+ miles, Bodie Stephens to drive past Morehead daily probably around 100+ miles a day and I'm sure Dennis Jackson and others get a vehicle to drive anywhere they want. Let's do the math. First we have the expense of the vehicle alone with an added cost of maintenance. I would say that alone could afford us at least 1teacher. Then add in the fuel expense of gasoline an average of 225 days a year driving 31,500 miles at $3.25 a gallon (conservative amount). That's a whopping $8531 for 3 people to have a ride to and from work. Who else works at a place where your employer pays your gas every week and gives you a car with insurance and oil changes and practically anything else you could ask for. Yes, I must agree with "No Changes Made". Unfortunately this won't change things either.

I get your point, but lots of places provide vehicles for their employees. They usually include gas, oil changes, and maintenance. I work at one of those places. Hell, we even had a guy wreck his brand new truck within weeks of getting it. He was provided another vehicle while his was being fixed.

All these people should give up the cars,and they should be sold.These people are taking away from our kids.It is really sad that the money they make they can't buy their own cars,like all of us.What makes them so important?When the teacher does not have ink for their printers,and we pay for them cars ,gas,insurance,and maintenance.You people should be ashame of yourselfs.And,when the children go on a trip and they are left to fine their way back to where they were staying because the bus driver had to come back to Nicholas County to take children home from school.They get all this and we don't have an extra school bus for trips?These people needs to come down to earth,the children are MORE IMPORTANT then they are.

I'm with Serious. But I get where u r coming from. The difference is thats a COMPANY providing 4 there company employees and COMPANY money. The school providing cars is TAXPAYER money! This isn't a company run school!

Paul, I too understand your point but when budget cuts require loss of jobs as the solution, shouldn't we reconsider this frivolous expense? The expense is not a loss to the system, its at an expense to our children. The very children they are supposed to be servicing. I realize this is common practice for businesses but for schools to do this is ridiculous. When we would allocate money to pay for vehicles and prioritize it over teachers....this is absolute carelessness and selfish of administrators. This is absolute proof that their priority is protecting their pockets and paychecks to sustain their lifestyles, NOT stretching a budget and cutting back to preserve our students' education and the school's integrity.

Why is this the first I've heard of this? Don't they have to show a budget and expense report to the public? It should be printed in the paper monthly like any other office that is supported by tax dollars. How can an average person know this and who do we speak out to?

Question.. if you were in charge of transportation.. would you take your personal vehicle out every morning at 3:00AM to check the roads?? probably not and that should not be expected of anyone in any job.. The resource officer.. Have you ever seen a cop without a vehicle?? I cant believe anyone could not see the values of the school having and providing transportation when it is necessary for the school to function properly... why dont we just do away with school buses all together and everyone can drive their own kids to school... think about it..

I can see Jackson needing a vehicle maybe in the winter, but the school cop, absolutely not! He doesn't respond to crap when he is off, I always here oar on my scanner our city cops responding to alarm drops at the school. Allison stays drunk when he gets off work. Ive seen that SUV at Kroger in Mt Sterling. He has NO business having a vehicle to take home

Good point, NO, I would not take my personal vehicle out to check roads at 3:00 in the morning, nor does he. That is a situation in which communication with our state and county road departments could save money for the school as well. Especially since they are out on every road in the county during bad weather. Nonetheless, neither is Mr. Jackson. As a matter of FACT, yes I said FACT, Mr. Jackson was sitting in the bus garage Tuesday during the entire hour delay and made his decision to cancel school NOT after being on the dangerous road but after sitting there watching it snow all morning. So, if he did the job he was hired to do, he would've been on the roads in that taxpayer vehicle instead of sitting around. Your point is valid however, but only for a transportation director who uses his vehicle for the job. This still doesn't validate giving Mr Stephens a vehicle to drive to Morehead everyday. How is that a necessity? As far as the resource officer, he's not a sheriff, he has scheduled hours that he works. Can he not haul himself to work everyday and then move his vehicle from the bus garage to the gates and turn on his lights. Seems like that would save a lot of money. It's not like the campus is huge or that he has to go on a run and stays on call every night. Not to mention there are only 2 schools for him to travel in between. Seems like a golf cart could meet his needs.

If you are so set on providing transportation for Mr Allison and Mr Jackson we could let them ride the bus to school.
