Heard that there was a big meeting tonite at the board. Heard Chavies was being split in half. Half to Dennis Wooton. And the other half to buckhorn. Also heard that the big creek people boycotted going to schools with AB Combs. Guess big creek teachers don't want 25 in a room as compared to their normal 5 to 1 teacher student ratio. Big Creek your doo doo stinks just like everyone else's. please stop being afraid on big bad AB Combs. Willard will be going in with AB and Big Creek.

This has been in the working for awhile now, but is just coming out.
Chavies is not getting a new school. The new school, East Perry has enough room to accomodate 1/2 of the kids from Chavies. A.B. will loose about 150 kids to East Perry due to redistricting. There will be a combining of A.B., Willard, and Big Creek in about 3 years when another school is built on top of Coal Harbor out near exit 56. The days of having a school for 100-150 kids is over. It is not cost effective and costs the state and districts too much money with the low enrollments.

If youre pissed about budget cuts and lack of funding, then you have no one to blame but yourselves. There just isn't enough money for public education like there used to be... I guess supporting expanded gambling didn't seem like such a bad idea after all huh?

Where the hell do you think the tax revenue from the lottery goes? "In rich people's pockets"? The same laws that apply to the lottery will apply to casinos. Have you or your kids ever got a Kees scholarship? That's paid for with dirty gambling money(lottery). Ever heard of the CAP grant? Howa bout the Kentucky tuition grant? Yea both funded by gambling. I, as well as thousands of kentuckians wouldn't have had a chance to get a college education without gambling money.

ALSO those dirty gamblers have also funded a couple billion dollars to ky early childhood education. Maybe you should educate yourself on the subject before you get an opinion about it. Maybe if we had more money for education there wouldn't be ignorant redneck who are against things they don't even understand.

Where did I say I was pissed? The problem is enrollment. People don't have as many kids now, therefore the enrollment is down across the board. The small community schools can't support themselves anymore and therefore there have to be consolidations. I for one am glad. Kids need more technology and more class choices. Larger schools can offer this.

I think kids learn more in a little school. Teachers can focus more on them. The more the kids the less time a teacher can help an individual student.

well, here's my opinion and yes i have had children go thru school so i've been there and done that. i think that there is to much focus on sports than education. if your a ball player you will get thru school regardless of how little you know. there is no monies for the education of children but look at the money that is spent on sports programs. if the deucation part was pushed as much as sports all our children would recieve a higher education and maybe by the time they graduated they could read and write and understan what they are reading and maybe find jobs to support themselves and their families, instead of getting married or living with each other and living off the government and having baby after baby. no wonder we're in a finanicial bind this country as gone to the birds.teach our kids more thasn to bounce a ball or hit a homer or kick it a long ways.we need to teach our kids the way china does, look at their kids they are all very intelligent and job worthy

My kid got the entire KEES scholarship when he went to school. It is performance-based. Uses GPA and ACT scores to determine the amount. Maximum, at that time, was $2500 per year or $1250 per semester.

You can think those dirty sinning gamblers for that scholarship money.

Recent studies suggest we could add another 400 MILLION dollars into grants and scholarship funds just like KEES if we would allow expanded gambling. Think about that for awhile.

Sucker.....SUcker......SUCKER !!!!

THIS is what happens to every state that starts more Gambling and justifies it by claiming the money will go to "fund education"...you know, for the "children" and all?

Once the money starts coming in...and the poor start getting poorer by spending their milk and food money on lottery tickets (which they then go apply for EBT because they find that, for some strange reason, they are suddenly having a hard time feeding their kids) well, once that money starts coming in....the politicians will REDUCE the money coming from the normal sources for education....and the NET amount spent "for the children" not only DOESN'T CHANGE (or may even actually go down)....but your dear children's education becomes dependent on funds from (mostly) poor people gambling away what little money they have.

And the gambling system operators laugh all the way to the bank, after throwing a good chunk of change to the POLITICANS, of course.

And they ALL have a good laugh at YOU....the SUCKER....while being amazed that, once again, you fell for the old "for the children" line.

These schools that don,t have the kids need closed just like Lost Creek was done.I,m all for Chavies spliting and half to Buckhorn and the new school.Oh I can hear it now these kids can,t ride a bus over that mountian it,s to dangerous,well they haulem over it every day right now.Hope they send some of the teachers with the kids to Buckhorn and hide them over their.Way to go board members you have it going right this time.But be ready for the next board meeting already in plans a flooded board meeting,letters send home for everyone to be their.They can,t make you build a new school at Chavies,they won't take care of the one they have.Hope they don't scare you board members into wasteing money.

Prove it. Show me evidence that anything you have said is based on fact. I can back up everything I have said, I base my opinions on facts. I seek to understand things before I form an opinion, not the other way around. So unless to have legitimate proof, evidence, or facts then STFU. Kthnx.

If I didn't have sports I probably wouldn't of went to school half the time. Sports rule. My kids play ball and make straight As plus are tops on the academic teams. I think to much emphasis is placed on all the dumbass kids. Why not do things for the smart out going ones?

Why does the news media keep telling us school districts are always broke? The scholarships you speak of contribute to businesses like UK. Look at hazard comm. college - it's not a college - you don't leave with any real education. It's just another diploma mill.

I heard that if Chavies gets land donated to them, a new school will be built as long as their enrollment stays at 300 or above.
