How about giving the taxpayers a break? Lets focus on the required subjects for learning, and cut from the sports programs.
How about a cap on how much tax unmarried homeowners have to pay for school programs that they do not utilize. Let the ones with children pay more since they use the system. It should adjust accordingly for the amount of children attending school. Why should a family with 1 child pay the same as those with 3?

Why do we need a 9 member school board if they can not do without raising the School Tax this year? 2012 they will need another increase and so on. This is a 'rubber stamp' group that approves any bubget put before them. We need change! I say vote them out and cut the board to 7 voting members. Better yet, make it 5 voting members.

Wow look at the faculty rosters for this school district ! It's a crime to the taxpayers to have to pay this extremely over-staffed institution. It's time for someone to earn their salary and run this District like a responsible business entity !

You have got to be making the dumbest damn argument I have ever heard. Your stupidity and others is astounding. You should have looked at the tax breakdown they provide for the property before you purchase it. If you do not like the tax rate you should not have purchased it. Geez. Oh one other thing, ya lets underfund our schools and produce a bunch of dunb arses that can't get a job and contribute to socity or turn to crime. Bet you will be moaning then also. By your post it is obvious you did not take advantage of any educational system. Bet single folks had to pay for you to flunk out. Typical right wignut thinking, got mine now screw you.
