Just bend over, don't fight it, remain calm and it won't hurt too bad! Awful that they are also talking about a $37,000,000 building project at the high school.

It just grinds my gears, that every few years they come up with something like this, and then a few years later, will come up with something totally different and want to spend more money, to correct the mistake that they spent money on, a few years before! Im all for education, and Im well aware that its going to cost money, but these folks on the board now, seem to think they more they spend, the higher the quality of education our kids are going to receive.
Lets take a look at what the current board does professionally, for a living. I see bankers, doctors, lawyers (and spouses), insurance guru's, etc, etc, and most of them think little of a signifigant tax increase. I wonder what difference there would be, if the board had a more blue-collar appeal to it?

I would question how much is being spent on extra curricular activities. How many extra and assistant coaches and support staff do they need? Summer band too! Do the directors get paid for all the hours they are out their playing? It's disruptive to those of us who live in ear shot! It seems like they practice all summer and during football season they practe night after night! Never any peace within ear shot of the school! Are they volunteering their time or is all that practicing coming out of our pockets in the form of a big extracurricular bonus for the band director? Haven't improved from all the extra hours either! Many thought last years half time show was sub par to previous shows.

$1.2 million for a maintenance building? For a garage? Are you kidding me?

What idiot figured that price? Put up a pole building for god's sake. Does anyone have a clue what $1.2 million dollars will build?

Soft costs of $5 million for engineering?

Your fired!

Sorry Bubba! I'm pretty sure that in order to be on the school board, you have to know grammar, punctuation, and capitalization so that leaves you out for the next school board member that will promise to save Clearfield. Good thing you're moving from Clearfield. The taxpayers of Clearfield have a right to complain. There is an 8-year-old multi-million dollar school sitting in LeContes Mills that is empty, going to waste, and this is all thanks to the school board!

EXACTLY! And who on this board is qualified to make multi million dollar decisions besides, possibly, Tim Morgan??? Then there are all the administrators, this board hired two of the biggest bozos to run the middle school, were the other candidates that bad??? But the principals and vice principal aren't the only VERY HIGHLY PAID ADMINISTRATORS. We forget about the Director of Special Ed...$80000+, what the heck is going on here, it is ridiculous to me that they are paying that guy so much money. We live in Clearfield PA people not exactly the land of wealth and fortune. All, and I do mean ALL of the Administrators need to take a SERIOUS SALARY CUT.

If I were on school board, I would go to every meeting just so I could see Jenny Wallace.

I sure hope you realize that there is more to Jennifer then her beauty. She is smart, and did you happen to read that she is one of three who doesnt want to raise our taxes??? I talked to her the other day, and she is very approachable. I asked her why she is voting for no tax increase. Her response was "because first of all our community cannot afford to fill their gas tanks let alone pay more money in taxes, and secondly she said that she feels there is more "fat" to be cut in the budget." Now I dont know about you, but I dont care how she looks, sounds like she is an intelligent, grounded young women who is looking our for us tax payers. I think she also has children who attend the schools? I really didnt want to ask her and sound like a creeper.

Yea, I know there is more to her than that. I know she is a smart person underneath her looks. I think the rest of the school board should seriously listen to what she has to say more often.

Now you are getting a little ridiculous with the "intelligent" comments about Mrs. Wallace. I think a part of her is on that board to stand up for what she thinks is right for the kids, but she knows nothing about finances, ask her husband. We need to combine educating children with fiscal responsibility. Matt Houser why are you on this topic, you don't live here, you don't pay taxes here, and as far as I know you don't have children here. Call her up, I think she's single.

As a matter of fact, I do still pay taxes up there. I maintain dual residences between Pittsburgh and Clearfield for work reasons. And as far as her having no intelligence, unless you personally know her, you have no idea what the hell you are talking about. She takes her position on the school board very seriously and is on various commitees. She is also one of the few that gets up and speaks her mind when she feels it is needed, unlike some of the slugs who just sit there and go with the flow. As far as her managing finances, are you taking the word of her soon to be ex husband Kevin? This is the same person who cheated on her while she was pregnant with their child. Yea, he's really upstanding isn't he?
jealous much

Agh, the slander starts......I do not know Jennifer Wallace personally, but I do know Kevin. Can I just say, that he will do, and say anything to squirm out of being the guilty party. I have heard him personally talk about the way he treated her, and its appauling. Im guessing you are just a jealous person, and for whatever reason have something against Ms. Wallace. Regardless, I think she is doing a fine job on the board, and really hope we can stop ripping people apart on here. She is the mother of 4 small children, who live in this town also. Lets keep it "g" rated please.

Hmmmm...who had to bring her up then? I'm sure she loves that Houser brings her up on a Forum like this, and talks about her appearance, like it's her only asset. She is trying to be taken seriously on this board.

Enough with personal attacks on Jenny Wallace, have any of you ever been to a board meeting? If we had more board members like her, and less like Dave Glass, we would be much better off.
