It is nice to see citizens of Scott County like
Greg C attending board meetings with no agenda. We need more senior citizens to get involved in decisions that are made for the students of this county. Too many people only come when they want something.

You become bored when you are a senior citizen during the winter months and have nothing to do. So atttending a meeting about young people will put a hop in your step and give you energy to spring into spring and summer.

<quoted text> You are kidding I hope. No one has a bigger agenda than Greg Carter-Smith. He is there to make sure the puppets he placed in office are woking toward reinstating the wacked Dr. J back to her high ranking.
You are surely not insinuating that Mr. Carter would try to buy the school board to pursue such an agenda. I can't believe that our newly elected board members would be so gullible. I find it hard to believe that these members could be bought for the price of a few plastic signs. And I'm sure that Mr. Carter would only want want his daughter promoted only on her own merits.

So the school board has asked 3.3 million from the BOS to balance their budget. When is a decision going to be made if the BOS will help the school board balance the budget out?

Somebody at the county payroll office discovered that about 18 teachers got pay increases while others didn't. Several administrators got huge pay increases while others and teachers had theirs cut.. or locked in place for over 5 yrs. Seems to be two groups of teachers...and select elite and the rest are working for peanuts. Some got as much as $10,000 in 3 yrs..... so for the sbo to ask the county for 3 million is down right wrong and dirty....this new board needs to wake up......if this is happening then those that got the raise and pay increases should be fired or made to give it back...and the former board members and former super that caused it should have to answer for waisting 6 mil on a sports complex that no one can use and giving a select few pay increases while forcing the rest to suffer so that the elite could benfit.

In order to better serve the education of students in Scott County would it wise to close one or two of the smaller elementary schools in Scott County? At the present time it appears that school buses overlap runs that go by some of these smaller schools as they go to one of the three high schools. This would save on the mantiance of school buildings and save on the energy bill. This would not cause a reduction in teachers becasue you would have the same number of students. This would reduce adms at the schools. The only way to do this would be to not have the political aspect entered into this decision but only the economic policy of the county.

Not to worry....payday just arrived for those that were left out...read the Kingsport Times....I believe that after. The smoke clears no one will ever want to be on the board or within a mile of that building

You poor dumb bastard. If you think GC has no agenda then you also think he is attending these meeting for the good of our children. The clan doesn't do anything that doesn't favor them. That is why he was out campaigning so hard for some of the new board members. And you guys that he helped will owe him a favor very soon. That's Ok there are other people attending the meetings and are watching very closely.
We have just got through with one superintendent and school board who were pulling all kinds of shanagans and are going to see that it doesn't happen again.
