Wondering what the deal is with the students at the middles school not having lockers? When do they get them? With all the money I pay in taxes and wwatching the maintenance and care of the football field and teams ( new helmets, buses provided after practice , etc) how is it they do not have a budgetory allowance for more lockers?

they only have lockers for 7th and 8th graders for 5.00$ this is my understanding i feel ya on the tax rate it's over the top for this small of a county i'm hoping they start quickly on building the news High School so we can see our money being spent well!

It certainly is ! I just got my assessment and I will pay 2100 in taxes on the house alone. I think its riduculous not to have enough lockers - someone told me that you pay the money for the lock you rent from them, wouldn't it be more economical to have the students supply the lock ( the school provides a bolt cutter) and pay 10 bucks a student to have a locker ( for a year ) that way that 10 bucks each could be spent to buy modular locker sets? I have been to schools where the have the walls of the corridors and hallways lined with them , so they have the space . Liberty County has surplus sales and they sell lockers- old lockers are better than no lockers! I complained last year and was told to buy my son a rolling backback to hold the burden and guess what-I did -to which his bus driver told all the kids they wouldn't be allowed on the bus if they brought rolling backpacks again! We can't win! So is their news of another high school? We are military and wonder when its going to be built! Hopefully we will be here to see it!

we too are military been here 2 yrs and from what i read in the paper,it's suppose to be built by smiley they didnt have a date at that time..i've noticed things move very slow here. as for taxes mine too where craZy, i was like WTF. guess because it's a new home well thats what i was told by the tax lady,she seems like a local so who knows how true that is. I will say i love the schools not the appearence, but the heart of this school system is fabulous! Best thing i can tell you is stay active support the town it's kinda like good ole boy system. i believe people are starting to get educated and with education comes changes. Seriously the mayor is like 100..lol so vote this november. We are here for awhile roots in the ground!
