Not sure if everyone is aware or not but Alleghany County School Board is holding a meeting to discuss closing Boiling Springs and Sharon schools. I think the meeting is tonight.

The meeting was tonight.....which was pointless because they had already made their mind up (with the exception of Billy Angle-who received a standing ovation) They presented two options, The first to make cuts, the second to close Sharon and Boiling Springs....They chose the latter! Here's an idea, why doesn't the lady in the middle take a pay cut, or how about all of them take a pay cut, stop driving county vehicles while your not actually working, don't purchase 2 new buses just yet.....there have got to be other options other than closing these schools!

Here is an idea, lets cut the administration office. Somewhere I read that the secretary to one of the directors had a secretary. Why does a secretary need a secretary? If this is true seems there is alot of FAT that can be cut without cuts teachers and closing schools. Why do we need a director for everything?
You are right "Sharon Mom" they had already made up their minds and probably weeks ago.
All of these cuts to our school come from our governor. Isn't he just wonderful.

If anyone would like to speak at the meeting that will be held on June 4th, the paper stated that you MUST register to speak before the meeting. If you do not register, you cannot speak.

Rumor has it today that, although the Board of Supervisors has offered the money that is needed to keep the two schools open for another year, the School Board will probably reject the offer and move ahead with closing the schools. The reason given is that this is seen as only a short term fix and not a permanent solution to the general school funding issue. The School Board believes that even with this money, we will be in this same position one year from now; if not a worse one!
