They just announce they are getting rid of Mr.Pulos and due to budget cuts moving pre-k to the other schools. I don't know the reasons behind Mr.Pulos dismissal but it probably has to do with the good ole boy system that goes on around here. Everyone has their opinion on him but if the man has helped bring our state testing scores up and has tried to do better for our kids education then why are you getting rid of him?
Well now the Board is thinking about budget cuts so they along with the superintendent have decided to put our pre-k in with the other schools.That means getting rid of more teachers.I have a suggestion for budget cuts why don't they cut the Superintendent and the new football Coach their pay and incentives they gave them. A good football team is not going to help my daughter or son get into a good college. I am so tiered for my school taxes going towards hiring a football coach and trying to achieve a winning team! I want to see my taxes going into my children's classroom meaning not only paying taxes but also having to pay a full price lunch, bring in tissue paper, xerox paper, etc. Next thing you know I'm going to have to send my kids with toilet paper so they can wipe their ass. Election's are coming so I hope we can have members that care about our kids education and not about football as much. Also member's that actually have kid in the PUBLIC school and not in Private!

I hope you are a voter and that you will talk to other people about voting for changes in the current school board.

The Wayne County School Board built a tennis court and eliminated a very good ROTC program that many of our less fortunate students excelled in. They then hired a football coach for more than $100,000 and eliminated our sex education program. They inherited a significant surplus of funds from the prior board and have chosen to spend it on their own toys such as an onsite football pavillion that we didn't seem to need in the past. The firing of our high school principal is a travesty. He did his job, too bad the BOE can't do theirs. They need to go, but who would want to clean up their mess.

I am new in Jesup and so do not know the history and politics here yet (Praise GOD!) BUT I have many friends in the school system and I am extremely disappointed in the fact that they let Mr Pulos go. By all indication he was a great principal and educator. As for the closing of TJ Ritch, I understood that the repairs on the facility cost to much. That may be true but what are they going to do with the building now? I think cutting the ROTC is pathetic. That was an opportunity for many students to actually make a better future for themselves and build character all at the same time. I hope that when the next election cycle comes about that there will be changes in the board!

Has the students gotten better grades with this school board? I know that in S.C. they keep throwing money at the problem and building new schools and so far not much has happened.

Although the school board might be messed up, Dr. Morris is definatly doing his job. I think he is one of the best people we have in out school system. I back up all of his decisions. I see where he is going and its going to work out!!!

Please explain where the Supt. is going. He and the board are shrinking everything down-toward what end?(btw, Morris is his first name, he is Dr. Leis)

The Board just cut art, music and computers programs for k-5. Keeping the teachers, just moving them around. How much money does that save? When will they cut into sports and save money on those programs????

Yes they first went and cut programs that were available to all the kids before messing with their football.Weeks later they decide to cut one football coach, one basketball coach o but he gets rid of the whole middle school swimming program. Again only gets rid of 2 coaches but cuts down on security at sporting events and gets rid of six school secretaries. Techears are getting more furloug days and kids more days off I wonder how many furloug days the Mr.leis is getting.

despite the negative comments about the current school board, i will praise them for all of the long hours and dedication that they give to help our students. the state dictates furlough days, the state tells the school system what programs will be eliminated for public schools. so when you vote for your governor consider this.

Dr. Leis should spell his name Dr. Lies. He is a puppet to the school board chairman and everyone knows it. He has lied to several people throughout the short time that he has been at WC. I don't know who the person is that believes he is doing his job, but they obviously don't know the man. I have been told by someone in the athletic department that the Athletic Director and Superintendent are being deceptive about cutting the sports positions. They say they cut the position but in reality they used the savings from the cut to increase the pay for the rest of the football coaches. I can't wait for the new budget to come out to see what the real deal is...
