The rich get richer....there throwing all kinds of money around in jobs and promises to try to get there board members re-elected. I say we vote them all out! It's time we got raises, the cooks, janitors, aides, bus drivers and teachers are just as important as people that works in the big office in town.
I can't believe they sent board employees to New Mexico while we can't get a raise and they expect us to do more work with less people!
We've got to vote in new people and hope they'll do better than what's there!

Elections matter and have consequences. Make your vote count and express your concerns at the ballot box. We can do better!

The teacher that is at Goose Rock replaced a teacher that quit last year. Why wouldn't they be replaced as needed? They are also probably going to hire another one there or something because one teacher has been out since Christmas last year and doesn't know if/when they'll be able to come back. Her sub is a retired teacher that only gets so many days to work each year. There's also a new teacher there that came from Big Creek (I think?) to replace the other teacher that quit last year.

I'd say there is at least one new teacher at every school in the county. I know of one at Oneida, one (maybe soon to be two) at Goose Rock, and one at Big Creek. It's not uncommon to have new hires and transfers at any business.

Who did they send to New Mexico? Was it a conference or professional development? I know in the past they have sent some teachers and staff out of state for those? Again, not uncommon and done by EVERY school board, not just this one (and most are in dire straits these days).

It may not be UNCOMMON....but I thought we were broke? Why couldn't they use a teleconference at EKU and save all that money from a trip? It's a joy ride bunch of crap while the rest of us suffer with higher health insurance and no raises!

The new teacher that was hired took Ms. Vickie Couch's place. Ms. Vickie worked the first day of school and didn't come back. The other teacher. Ms. Penny Fultz, has been off since January or February because she broke her leg at the school. I don't think she will be back. The retired sub can sub 100 days of school. Hacker actually lost one of their teachers. She got sent to Paces Creek. Hacker got their former computer lab teacher back also.

The lucky ones in New Mexico are Denva Hibbard and Susan Burgin. The promise neighborhood people were sent there and they woulnt pay for anyone from the bd to go and Denva wanted to go and didnt want to go by herself so they pd for Susan to o too. It is to do with RTI is what was told and that is prob a lie....cause what in the world would New Mexico have to do with KY RTI (testing for spec ed) they she had the nerve to get on facebook and talk about New Mexico being amazing!

Special Education is a federally mandated program funded by the federal government, the training was out there because OF THE FEDERAL PROGRAM PROMISE NEIGHBORHOOD, thats where they choose to have it, they could have had it in Kalamazoo, Chicago, Lexington, Tyner, or Tim Buck F*&^%$ too and our people would have still had to have went. They just choose New Mexico to have it and our people had to go to be one of the area's where president Obama is trying to send some extra money to help your CHILDREN.

I want any of you sorry assholes to stand up and state your name here if you were willing to refuse a mandated federal training and jeopardize your job and federal money coming in for our CHILDREN because you felt they were having it in too nice a place.

Most of you sorry assholes don't care one bit to go file for a disability check on a back that really isn't hurt and you here bashing people who are trying to work and help our CHILDREN and be trained so they can run our federally funded programs the right way.

YOU ARE JUST A MISERABLE HATER WHO HAS NO FORM OF LIFE WHATSOEVER.

I'll be checking in here for the names of all you wholesome assholes who would refuse a trip.

Here you stupids go, I hope you can read this if you can thank a teacher who went and got trained to help you.

Get educated before you get on here bashing people.

This is nothing against the kids! People take training and earn degrees online all the time. Why is this different? I know a woman that got her entire degree online! I guess a trip to New Mexico was to good to pass up, don't worry about, all us cooks, janitors and bus drivers we'll just take another pay cut so that can be paid for to.
Trying to WORK and HELP our children does not mean taking a trip to New Mexico at the expense of others. We've been cut to give Reese Cup a raise and now more higher paying jobs have been created when we can't even get a cost of living raise?
Something don't sound too fair to me!
Can you honestly say it's right to keep cutting us and the teachers while new made up jobs are being created? Can you say that? If so state YOUR name on here so we can see who this idiot is! Obviously you are either one of the board sucks or you don't work for the school system.

Well it seems to me that you are lashing out to the wrong people, I don't think it is the (check drawers)or the ones who file for a disability check as you stated above. It seems to be the teachers, cook, janitors, bus drivers and anybody that is employed by the board but that doesn't actually work in that building that are doing the complaining...

That's exactly right! I think enough is enough! People need to go to the next board meeting and tell them what we think! But if we do that they will come back on us and try to fire us or either move us into other jobs longer from home.
We have no rights, if you're not in the 'crowd' then you get nothing.
I thought people going to jail through these investigations was supposed to change all this? Nothing has really changed at the board, it's just a different set of politics controlling everything now.
I better hush I guess or I'll get fired!!

The Promise Neighborhoods grant doesn't have anything to do with Special Education.

The Wikipedia article you pointed out is very outdated. See these links for more information about PN.

Get ya panties out of a wad before they stick in your azz there partner. If the promise neighborhoods turn out like the ones in Chicago, Clay Co will have something to be proud of. If you have to travel all the way to New Mexico to learn something about your own community to know what will help it, you have a problem bigger than you thought. About half of the kids that enter high school there dont graduate and only about 49 percent of fourth graders read at grade level. One thing they do learn tho is to shoot and murder each other. It got so bad they had to call on a Muslim (the religion of peace) to come and try to help them. Im sure all is quiet there now. Special education is a joke. If you want to see some former members of that group, pick up your local paper and look at the pictures of the one's arrested the week before. Great program there Mr ABC, thank the federal govt next time you are in town.
