Ya, right lets reopen the Lyons Falls, Turin, Denley, Locust Grove and all the other rural schools so our taxes will go so high we can finally file bankrupt. Nothing better then a bankrupt school district as long as we want to be sentimental about it, closing old schools, that aren`t going to last forever anyway.

I have lived in the SL district since 1985; we have never voted on closing Cville Elem. only on closing all 3 schools and building 1; also on buying land.

Here is an idea that no one thought of, why not ask the residents of West Leyden and other Lewis county parents that are forced to send their children to Adirondack School District if they wish to send them to South Lewis instead. The South Lewis School district is a far better educational institution then the Adirondack School District which continues to fail the taxpayers and students. Maybe the added students would add enough numbers to justify your biard to keep the C'Ville school open

Heres the plan where the school adminisration and teachers have, to get a new elementary school up by the high school. Close C`ville and enough people from there will be PO`ed so next time the vote for a new school comes up they will vote for it and it will pass this time. Three empty schools and the Turin campus is growing into what small colleges are now. Wait a few years and the enrollment will be down so much and the buildings there now will hold K-12 without adding another building. Look at what money it will save taxpayers for not building and maintaining another building. Sure we`ll save money now by closing C`ville, but down the road the administration will find ways to spend that money, they purpose to save, maybe adding a couple more electronic billboards, one in Turin park on 12D and one on rt 12 near the rock cut, Oops forgot to also give the supertindent a raise, a new car every year and all the gas he can burn in it, this is such a triving area with all employed, that we can afford almost anything, these semi- rich educators wants.
Close all three

Get it over with and close all three!
Then maybe we can move on to replacing bad teachers,bad coaches,bad aids,bad administers,
And then maybe help the KIDS out ,
In this day and age when schools are looking to consolidate districts! closing k-6 seems minor ,As far as having the West Leyden kids go to SL instead of Adk. because SL is better,,,, PLEASE ,get over that

If you put it up for the entire district to vote on, they would vote to CLOSE c'ville school. And as long as P.C. & A.S. are on the Board of Education, the super and the AD will keep thier jobs, no matter how bad they are! You all voted to put the board together, now you are gonna have to live with what they decide.

The AD needs to go,
Mr.Premo is doing a great job.
I don't want the C-ville school to close ! But where are we going to get the money? Cut a little here and a little bit there is not going to get us there.
Mr.Premo is trying to do the best for SOUTH LEWIS! not just C-ville. The teachers union is killing us, 2.6 million dollar for health insurance !!!please teachers go to your rep. take a freeze ,maybe a cut in health insurance ,,,,,,,
VOTERS--go to the meeting next Tuesday--If you don't like what they are doing , Vote them out of power and run for the spot yourself, Then you will see how hard it is to run a school.
I've been to the last 2 meetings -1 in the C-ville school then last night at the HS,This goes out to the lady who in both meetings , the one who got on Mr. Premos case about his pay! STOP IT!!! What he gets paid is not the problem!
Where he lives is not the problem!! Your personnel attacks make you look stupid!I'm sure your not! Why don't you run for the board?
Then you care be part of the solution , not just someone who attacks a person for doing his job.
Should Mr. Premo move into the district, Sure ,,, It's just not the problem, He is at every event ! My youngest goes to SL and tells me he's in the hallways all the time, he knows the kids names!
FOCUS on the real issues ,,,THE TEACHERS UNION!!!!!!
FOCUS on the real issues,,,, THE BOARD!!
MAKING BAD CHOICES ,LIKE THE $14,000 SIGN OUT FRONT,
A HEATING SYSTEM THAT ONLY WORKING AT A SMALL % FOR SOME REASON!

With that being said !!

Who is the lady that was on board a few years ago and bitched about the $1000 chair the president of the board uses only uses about once a month? She was blackballed and once they got rid of her she run a couple more times, but the inner click kept her out. So now your blackballed for mentioning the $14000 sign LOL.

Why do either of you care if she's on birth control. It's not your business. But just so you know she has a set of twins. I don't know who you are, but she did a lot of research and she made some good points. At least she cares. I think that your just mad because you didn't get that face time. Get over it.

It is our business if we are paying for it. And why have another when you already have THREE and are still just a kid??! She cares alright,-only about herself.

. It's not silly about pulling your kid out. Why would I want to put my kid in a school that rates in the 1000's or the 2000's when I can have her in one that's in the 700's. You need to think about that. Some of us really will do it and it might not affect student aid that much but it's what is best for our children. Besides then they really will see a drop in enrollment and that's where they keep saying the problem is. But hey that's not your problem is it?
