It is Questionable

This has me wondering and quite frankly a little worried. I know we can go to school and request them but that is very inconvenient for many of us seniors. Why has the school stopped updating the schools website for the residents of mercer? Thank you.

They are not obligated to put them on the website. Get off your lazy a$$ and go in and ask for them. I'm just amazed at you people that continually have to find something to bitch about. There isn't a conspiracy involving every aspect of that school like you jagoffs want to believe. I hope you realize it's the kids that love that school that will be hurt by your constant attempt to bring it down. But then again I don't think you've ever cared about the kids. SAD

Why wouldn't they want to do this for Mercer's residents? I believe the cost would be negligible and would be an upstanding service to the people. I have supported that school during the last referendum and care about the young children immensely. Please don't suggest otherwise. But you can darn well bet that if the line of communication is not kept open to the community as a whole, the next referendum will not turn out so well. That, son, I guarantee. I think some bad apples are spoiling the bunch. It may be time for us mercer residents to go to the market and get a fresh batch if we are to be kept in the dark.

I hadn't gone to the school's web page in quite a long time. Maybe 2 years and realized there are no updates. That's a shame.

It was discussed and advised to suppress the minutes so the board of 3 lady musketeers could promote their personal agendas without questions.

The truth is they have no one updating the web site hardly at all. I seriously doubt that Fred's conspiracy theory of supression has any merit at all. Here's an idea, why don't you attend a board meeting (always open to the public) and ask the board why the minutes aren't being posted on the web-page.

Mercer school is slowly dying. Its possible they are supressing the minutes to keep a calm. Probably Not. The true reality is the school going out of business. Sad!!

So what meeting did this happen at, and do you really have the proof about these 3 ladies, or is just your dislike of them.

This has been going on for quite some time now. Most of the controversial issues have been discussed in closed meetings and leaked.

The minutes are now updated on the school's website albeit very vague with what was discussed.

if you don't like the way things are being run then I suggest you get off your butt and run against the "3 musketeers". 2 of them will be up for election a year from now. you can complain all you want here but do you have the guts to actually step up and do something where it will have real meaning ?

Well put, I agree with you 100%. Too many on this forum trying to tear things down. Why not try to be positive and helpful and see what the results would be.

The school board minutes are once again not being updated on the school website in a timely manner. There have been many changes going on at our school that many of us have the right to know about but it seems certain people don't want these things to be known. For example, the principal has sold the weight room equipment for a mere $350.00. Are you kidding me? Money was raised to acquire this equipment at a value of about $5,000 and he sells it for $350. It was done without consulting anybody. Now you know. This is just one of many things that have transpired. Come on board members. Wake up and quit conducting your business under the table, would you?

Richard, you really need to get out from in front of your computer and take your lazy butt to the board meetings where your voice will be heard by those that can affect change. Complaining here will do no good. Better yet, run for school board, they have an election every year...or are you just one of those that will complain but do nothing about it ?

Who said I don't attend board meetings? My statement was, "The school board minutes are once again not being updated on the school website in a timely manner." People have the right to know what is happening. Sunny side, you obviously missed the point once again. Please read more diligently.

Richard, good for you if you are attending the board meetings....and you missed my point...complaining on this forum will do no good. Go to the board meeting and complain there where your voice will be heard by the board and maybe something will change. They (the board) must publish the minutes and make them available to the public, but minutes are all "after the fact" and are published only after approval at the NEXT board meeting. By then its too late to change anything. BTW, there is no law reqiring they publish the minutes on the web-site, although it would be nice if they did keep it updated.

Informing the taxpayers on this forum certainly does some good. It's an excellent medium to convey local news even if it is "after the fact". The school board is very sly and their under handed decisions need to be known even after the fact.

Nothing wrong with disseminating info but you might want to consider ways of reaching a larger audience. I don't think alot of Mercer voters even know this forum exists. A letter to the editor of the local papers would reach ALOT of people....but then you would have to reveal your true identity and maybe you have good reason not to want to do that.

Right back atcha Ms. Sunny Side. You wouldn't want your true identity revealed now would you? BTW, many many people know of this forum. Enough to get the news and commentaries floating around town, anyway. Thanks for your worldly advice though. What would we do without you?
