Good! back to the way it was before! Too much too soon!

You have to take in to consideration all the home schooled kids nowadays.

I hope that shuts down the new school development on the agricultural zoned land that is not going to be needed. When a small retail business can stay alive for more than 6 months and make a profit or a living, then look at possible development in Middletown.

if the board cuts teachers, I will not vote for a single one of them.
Class size is everything.

And the student body population at Snobb El. has also been shrinking! They think it's because there are not new parents moving into the area. But just ask around and many will tell you that they will not send their kids to that school! They are opting for home schooling or the charter school! It's funny how it is never mentioned how their enrollment is down too, hmm?

Let's see, try to close down MT school, with lower test scores, that means less money for the MUSD, or bus these students to Snobb El. where the scores are higher, thus more funding and "better educational opportunities"! Hmm, why don't they just move the better educational opportunities to MT? After all this school district is named after Middletown not Snobb!

Will this campaign to close Minnie Cannon never stop? Parents in this area will not stand for it!
It is ridiculous to bus students from MT up curvy mountain roads to Snobb El. They often have to close or delay school due to ice and snow. There has been several mountain lion sightings at the school and parents in the area don't even like the school!

I'm glad my kids go to MT! And many friends of ours from Cobb home school, charter school, pathways, etc...

If they try to close MC, there will be a flood of parents taking their kids out of the MUSD, where will Korby's funding come from then?

Middle School and High School kids already ride the buses down to MT. It is not a stretch for the Snobb El. students to do so as well! Bring all these better teachers, and administrators to MC along with their "smarter" students and raise the star test scores down here. That will bring more money to the district!

More teacher's union dribble. Amazing.... work from 9-3 8 months a year teaching math but they can't add up to why that shouldn't equal a full time salary
