We used to buy our own books. No books or the teacher won't let them leave the back room. Happened once a few years ago.

It is sad that the school board thinks a school bus is more important then books.

Didn't they also make the decision to have drama class instead of a computer class, in the elementary school. That's another one I don't understand.

This whole thing smells, there is more to the story, something is left out. Now for the rest of the story. Bus budgets and book budgets are completely different.

Then the board needs to get a better book budget.Books for our children are way more important then a new bus.And,I agree it does smell.The board nor the school doesn't care about the edcuation of our children.But, they want to tell the students how bad they do on the testing.I wonder why they do so bad NO BOOKS is why.I pay school taxes on everything,where is my money going?

Oh my how we always fall on "my taxes" the piddly amount you and I pay in county school taxes would hardly buy 2 new books a year, the amount I pay couldn't fill a bus up with gas for a day. Complaining on this site, is spinning wheels, it is problematic but can be solved by asking the people in charge. Take care of it. We can't.

Com-post you can't take care of this because you don't want to.It will take everyone that cares about the children to make this change.Their future is what is important,and they need books to study and take home.

Look who our school board members are , two of the five have children have drug related charges and one board member everyone talks about related to drugs. Then you have one needs to resign for health issues. So there you go!!

Ye who knows all, you accuse me of not wanting to do something? First you need to explain why students don't have books and why you haven't done anything about it. If you don't know then how do I? YOU need to monitor a class or have a meeting with, Greg, a teacher or a school board member. Now that you aired dirty laundry on the board members, lets hear about any other gossip you have. These are things I never heard. Why are they keeping it a secret? Shame on them for not having perfect lives and families. The grapevine still lives, tell more on this grapevine. Your issue was? Oh, Let's see "children don't have books".

There are NOT enough books to go around.The children CAN'T take the books out of the room.The teachers know about the books,so does Greg.This is NOT a secret.If the board members don't know about this they shouldn't be on the board.It is there job to know what is going on at the school.So in ENGLISH and HEALTH there are NO BOOKS for all the students.Do you get it com-post.The school don't want this out like so much in Nicholas County.I hope the parents that has children in school that is felling English and Health goes to school and tells them about the grades.Because without books the children can NOT study.

I hear a SHOUT OUT. And they told you WHAT about the shortage of Health and English books? Surely they explained the reason. As I stated we had to buy our own books. Made sure we had one in any case, that was up to you. Buy books for your student. And yes I get it, more than you think.

That's is why they have site-base at school and Board Members meetings every month to dicuss problems and concerns. Find out when the site base meetings and Board meetings are each month and go tell them!! Don't put it on here and fuss about it. They don't read topix!!!!

Maybe having no books is part of the reason our test scores rank 163 out of 174 districts.

Who's test? The tests are a political thing, it has nothing to do with intelligent children. They will learn despite a test. The willing go on to higher learning. The others find their own way. That is the way it has always happened and will continue. How many Valedictorians/Salutatorians have finished college after they graduated? It is glorified silliness, not very many have genius' going to public school.

The test books2read was talking about is Kentucky's test scores from 2011-2012. You can check any county.

I agree partially. Our students are just as smart as those in the next district. Our teachers are just as good as the teachers in the next district. Our teachers are being constantly reminded about test scores but are they really being told what they need to do to improve test scores? I'm sure they are frustrated and feel like they're just spinning their wheels. Is our administration going out and finding out what they should be doing and sharing it with the teachers?
I can tell you right now, I'd rather have my children attending a school that has test scores at the top than at the bottom and I'd think most sensible people would.
