South Miss. Co. School District is at it again. The budget that was in the newspaper said there will be a special election to raise millage on Feb. 14. You don't plan a budget with money you don't have.

No, there are a select few that are at it. Some work at the school and some don't. Doesn't matter if it is forced the state can't force but a 3 or 4%. Then DUMBASS Masters will be forced to use the money that his gay a*s has been sitting on instead of fixing things that should have been fixed a long time ago.

I'm all for the millage if someone other than masters will be in charge of spending the money! I heard he had flat screen tv's put in the junior high hallways. Now IF that is true why is he spending money on things like that? And why is our school board members allowing him to do this? IF it is true.

The school district needs to put the money used for elections and propaganda into the upkeep of the campuses.

I Well i do know, probably more than you. I'm not voting nothing down. I'm saying someone other than masters should be in control of the money. Just some of the stupid things he does. Why put flat screen tv's in the hall of the junior high if there are other things to be fixed. And why is he sitting on a couple million dollars waiting for the millage when he could be doing something now. And yes the amount is correct, probably less than what it actually is. The board members are allowing him to do this, and why?

There are certain funds districts receive that are specified for certain types of use. Don't be ridiculous and throw up flat screen tvs which can be bought for little of nothing and from funds specified for that type of thing. Does anyone want to really throw two million dollars into an ancient building which needs a new roof and structural updates(close to a million), wiring upgrades (breakers thrown constantly), and new heat and air. Any one of those things is a major investment. I would rather put that towards a new facility. The time is good because the state will kick in part of the costs. If we don't do it when they are willing to do that we will never be able to pass a millage high enough to do it.

Did this huy kick your kid out of school or something? The ditrict has a fund mandated by the state for building funds, which include repairs. So, you want the school board to drain the Supt fund to try and fix up 70 year old buildings? Is that what you are saying? Seems to me if the new supt has saved and built his fund up to 2 million (and we only have your word for that) then he should be congragulated. that money is used for emergecies and an ending balance that keeps the school from going into fiscal distress. So, you want all the money to be spent to keep old buildings open for another year before the walls and foundation crumble, plus you have no problem with the school system going broke and being taken over by the state.

No my kid has not been kicked out thank you. And if the funds for building repairs are state mandated then why haven't ANY repairs been done in the last few years. And since you can't read my post correctly i'll say it for you one more time. I'm all for the millage as long as he is not in charge of how the money is spent. And if you don't like my opinion what i think about him then that's your problem. The heat and ac breaks down all the time, but instead of spending the money saved to get it fixed instead he buys tv's for hallways. Things like that are stupid ways for management to spend money. Don't you think? I'm not saying rebuild a school that can't be rebuilt I'm simply saying until this millage is passed spend money on something like heat or air in the old schools not tv's in the new junior high.

The point still is why would you continue to fix things that are part of a crumbling structure. Things like tvs come out of funds that you couldn't use for facilities. That's the problem with this. People assume things without asking questions. Part of that is poor communication from the district, but people who pick out one thing and harp on it without really knowing what is going on share the blame too. The district is lucky to get grants and federal funds but many times those dollars are aporopriated.

Well if that's the case thank you for sharing that with me, but on another note if you do have money to fix something that your state money won't allow then why not do it? I do understand and i want the millage but he has made statements about how much has been saved starting back when Ford was here. So what if it doesn't pass for another year or two, do we keep sitting on this money? Why not spend a lil at least to fix some of the small things that is a must to have.

And it's just my opinion, which we are all entitled, i don't think it's appropriate to be spending several thousands of dollars remodeling the house next to the high school for gim to live in when it could have been used to fix something the kids needed.

I guess your too stupid to read what I've said about the millage. Let me put it in caps for you since you can't see it in all the other post. I WANT THE MILLAGE, I THINK WE NEED THE MILLAGE, I VOTED FOR THE MILLAGE. Do you see it now? But i personally still do not like masters or how he is running things. This district has lost a lot of good teachers because of money and I'm sure the other is working conditions. Well we are working on the codition part with the millage. So about the money part. No cost of living raise has been given out in a few years. Every other school around ours gave their employees a bonus for Christmas, Bly, Osceola, Manila. But did masters, nope. Now you can build the most expensive, high tech school in the country. But without good teachers in the room the education is no better than any. So i guess what i'm trying to say is when teachers see other schools giving raises and receiving bonuses that's an incentive to want to leave.
