Why now are we hearing all of this? Our school system hired a committee to hire a new superintendent. Did they not look into his background? Did they not search records? If this man thinks that he will be getting a new car, house, and other free expenditures, he should look somewhere else. Elmore does not have that kind of money. They are in a budget crunch just like every other school. We have a great school with great, hard working teachers, who do everything they possibly can to educate our children! We have two new principals, one at the elementary and one at the high school. They as well, are doing everything they can to make certain that cuts do not happen within the classrooms! They will not stand for someone coming in and taking all for them and giving none for the students! Just will not happen!! At Elmore City, we all work together, doing our best to achieve! With our new principals, we have visions to become greater with student achievement in all areas! One man will not come in and change that! As parents, leaders, students, and community members, we will keep alignment with the best, above the norm!

Darrow is worthless. If he was so worried about Carnegie and how bad of shape the school is in, he would opt out of his $20,000 payout. HAHA! Yea right. He is out for him and him alone.**** on Carnegie basketball. Doug Schumpert is gone. Thank god. Get rid of that over-paid coach you have now, and put that money back into the school. Most people forget part of the equation. STUDENT-ATHLETE. If you can't keep your school running so the kids can get an education, what good is the basketball team. Student should come before athlete. But in Carnegie, that is not the way it is.

You think Darrow is worthless. How bout you get put in his shoes and see how you like it. There are many other schools in the sate of Oklahoma who are shutting down as well. Fort Cobb which is 10 miles away does the same thing we do and they are in a much bigger hole than we are. For your comment on basketball, guess you couldn't cut it out in basketball. Schumpert took Carnegie to state over 10 times the years he was there and he won 3 championships. The coach now is not over paid either, and if you want to question him on his state appearances you just wait his bunch he has coming up this year is pretty good. and for as the student athletes thing.. you be surprised most of the athletes makes good grades. what you wrote makes you a hater..

Oh my, these poor little children are sweating...get over it! I am not that old and remember not having a/c in school or my home and didn't think a thing about it. Of course, if the buildings were built with windows that don't open then the school shouldn't do it, but this is what happens when you depend on electricity to run your life. I tell my clients that electricity is only reliable when you don't need it and to have other ways to do things.

You are dang lucky to get Mr. Darrow. Carnegie will be hard pressed to find a replacement as good as he is.

Donny Darrow is concerned about saving taxpayer dollars, but him and his wife are leaving Carnegie with $40,00.00 of good old taxpayer dollars. This is their bonus for leaving. Was he concerned with saving money or taking money. Elmore City beware. I think Ed Doney missed the real story.

My thoughts exactly. Let us not forget about his BRAND NEW home he just built as well. I am sure he really needed this money. Poor Darrow! Breaks my heart to see him leave! YEA RIGHT! Will be the best thing that has happened to that school since Schumpert left.

Carnegie Schools are a F****** Joke. Between the incompetence of the HS Principal and the favoritism they show CERTAIN students is Bullshit and then when u go and complain they sit on their ass with their thumb stuck up it. They are only concerned with the boys sports and screw everyone else. U never see a basketball or Football player that gets in trouble get suspended off the team or anything during that Sport season, It seems to me that they always have to have the police it the school because the Administrators can't do their jobs. THE GOOD OLE BOYS HUH?????

doesn't surprise me. carnegie is a crap town. half the town needs to be demolished, the winos need to get off the corners, and the shacks you think are abandoned actually have people living in them. it's only redeeming feature is the movies and show dogs
