Maybe this has to do with our old buildings and large class sizes?

Maybe this has to do with the raise in cost of living and rental properties due to the gas and oil companies. Citizens have had to move to other towns because they can't find affordable housing here. We are being depopulated by the gas and oil industry.

I find it very interesting that the CEVSD state gradecard wasn't posted online. They had an F in disabilities and a D in lower 20%. Also, in the last week BHMS has had no running water...only toilets in the new gym and under the stage for 600 people!!! Where is the outrage??? Where are the porta potties?

Look in the mirror for your answer.
You won't support education so what
do you expect? Those with any sense
will leave. Don't worry you will get
enough mexican's to fill the gap.

Most jobs are elsewhere and they commute. With the cost of fuel to travel to work, for those who have work, its cheaper to move closer to the job. It's also cheaper not to have children. These could be why school enrollment is down.

The class size will only get worse. And some positions are filled with people who are not qualified who recieve exorbant paychecks. And with the oil and gas people here caused rent to skyrocket so non oil people cannot afford to rent. Our little town is going down the toilet fast. No wonder people are moveing away.

I don't know of any unqualified people in the school. They scored excellent in educating the students for close to a decade now. Paychecks are in line with others around the area. Population decrease is due to the lack of jobs. Most people don't want new business here, remember rumors of Wal-Mart coming, for fear of crime, increasing property tax and so on. This is not hard to figure out Any.

they probably read teacher randy millers letter complaining about hungry children getting free lunches and said WHY WOULD I SEND MY CHILDREN THERE.... the teachers don't care about the children.

That is why they had so many snow days, to protect the children from the weather for their safety. They care, you're not there.
