If we are to be honest about the whole school situation it is economically sensless to keep it open. With test scores the way they were it is surely to close!!
Have heard it

Have heard it may be closed but who knows? If your child has to relocate to a new school I would advise you to visit classroom prior to enrolling your child.

The state will probably not keep it open. It is a shame because it is a nice little school. Now that Mrs Hudson has left the school board then they will close it because she fought to keep it open
info for u

I heard it was closing in January. Also heard that state was taking over Jackson City and both systems would be combined. So many grades will attend LBJ (preschool thru 5) 6 & 7 at Jackson City & 8 and 9 at SMS. Probably closing Highland Turner also but not for of that one.

If they do close rousseau school and send them to LBJ then the new name for LBJ would and should be LBJ-Rousseau Elem.School.. since all the other schools that closed and combined to new schools had a name change it would only be right and fair for there new name to be LBJ-Rousseau school!!!!!!!!!!
so true

I do agree with the name change..Its a shame that they would even talk about closing such a GREAT school.some kids would have to get up way to early to go to school at LBJ. KEEP ROUSSEAU OPEN is the right thing to do.

I agree they shouldn't close the school. I herd the great new board member family has been talking bad about a lot good people in the community. But don't they know the ones they talking bad about making lies rumors up was the people who put em in office. Wonder what the Holbrooks gonna do keep school open? Change the name ? Get rid bunch teachers and oh yeh get new principle. I hope school don't close but with the holbrooks talking bout people and spreading false rumors on people it's untelling Wat they stand for.

If Rousseau does close down alot of the kids will leave the Breathitt Co School System. Some will go to either Knott or Magoffin County Schools. Others will go to Jackson City or Riverside. LBJ will be lucky to get 10-20 of the kids. The big wheels won't be getting any of the extra money from the Rousseau kids.

Yeh they would have to pay tuition. But it be better than Lbj, marie Roberts. I say leave Rousseau and highland turner both open. The system says we ALL ABOUT THE KIDS! No its all ABOUT THE MONEY they get. If it was about the kids they do more to help them, get higher test scores, get 100 percent graduating rating. Inforce rules against drug use in school especially teachers, Especially not being 100 percent focused on FOOTBALL and BASKETBALL. That's all they worried about sports an money!

Yeh bc his kids to old to go to 7th grade which is all Rousseau goes to is 7th grade. Yeh go ahead close it. They loose 98 kids at $100 day for each kid. Help the big wigs wallet. Yeh good idea. If they close Rousseau they need close highland turner, Marie Roberts, Lbj to

Rousseau School has had its share of ups and downs, but overall has been a good little school for our community.Bonnie done a wonderful job these past few months running the school. She was very professional and made us as parents feel welcome and made our children feel at home.They should have left her in there to finish this school year out. Thanks Bonnie for your outstanding job as acting principal!

Yeh she done good. So does Darrel watts. I just hope the school stays open. I heard that the new superintendent didn't like sports he was for the kids education. Maybe this man will keep Rousseau open

Yeh I know banks to all he knows how do is sue the board. He isn't worth nothing. He just mad bc melody made his ass work. I think all parents need go to the next board meeting raise hell. Keep Rousseau open. It's good school and at least the teachers don't try have sex with the teenagers but if they did they only get 250 dollar fine. That's sickening !! Keep Rousseau open
