They put a new roof on RMS... seems like a waste of money. MEC could use a new roof and they don't pay a sturctural engineer to monitor it for saftey. This type of wasted money doesn't provide a good quality education to the students.

RMS is not in the future of Ringgold School District. They need to stop wasting money on this school for repairs and engineers to watch it move, close it and use what we have.
what we have is worse than what we are using

MEC needs work because this school board has not spent money on needed repairs over the years. They have wasted money for years, trying to build a new school.

DEC has serious structural problems that are being glazed over. I am amazed that there are people out there that seriously want to put kids back in these buildings. Maybe since it is not their children!

This school board has known for years, they needed to move the middle school students to a different building... they still have students in this building. They neglected to make needed repairs to the other buildings, wasted millions over the years trying to build a new building. Fix neglected repairs... MEC would work as a middle school.

For MEC to function as a middle school for the same students as the proposed new school WOULD require another addition to the building. This still necessitates the complete renovation of the exisiting building. That site has access and drainage issues. So now you are completely gutting, remodeling, building a new addition on a land-locked property ALSO built on pyrite. Build new from the get-go and build what you need.

It is not on pyrite but not worth fixing building
Taxed enough

They have wasted too much time. Thr new community middle school should have been built already
State has frozen reimbursements due to the budget mess. No sense footing the entire bill when eventually there will be reimbursement.
Of course if Smith, Smith, Mauro and Kennedy have their way, Ringgold taxpayers will be out about 40 million to fix two old hulks.
Hopefully the current board will tear them down.

I'm sorry Wakeem, but you're incorrect. Chuck Smith himself stated that floor in the cafeteria was heaving when he went there, due to the pyrite. This was confirmed by the architects.
