those Ipads working out for every student in the Middle and High schools? And the $200,000+ video system that will merely record a video of someone that comes in shooting?? They are already starting their sob story so they can hit up the taxpayers again. BUT--they spend with NO regard to the taxpayers--

Linda Chapman allowed that building go to rack and ruin but if anything can be salvaged great. If not then the land alone, now that the fairgrounds (50 feet away) is getting a facelift, is worth at least $700,000.00. Why has it taken 8 years to figure this out? If only that building could talk.

Have Dave Hallbreaker open up "Big Gay Dave's Gay Animal Farm" and charge admission to all the people who hate Dave and even by donating 10% to the school, it will more than make up this deficit on opening day.

mind paying extra taxes for the school district if I actually saw positive results coming out of EP. Yes there are a few shining stars but overall this district is mediocre at best, wasting taxpayer money, scandals, graduating students that are not qualified just pushing them through the system, graduates that must take remediation classes in order to get into college, overpaid superintendents and administrators for 1300 students (was at 5000 in 2003) and declining every year, bullying beyond compare (ethnic problems), etc. No thank you Mr. Hickey...your propaganda will not work for me.
