It's based on simple math. Look at the enrollment trends. Look at their budget. They can't even balance it based on current attendance rates, and they are losing tons of kids every semester to Wayne County. On top of that, they are now "state assisted", which means that nobody will be keeping the doors open based only on personal gain as they probably won't be able to slip it in the books anymore.
It's inevitable.
You are full of crap!
Attendance dropped this year based on two events
1) Head Start moved off campus due to bad decision making. A majority of their "output" went to Wayne County as a result
2) There were several staff that were hired elsewhere that "encouraged" students to follow them, sometimes utilizing inappropiate means.
The reasons for the financial problems are much simpler
1) Former management failed to follow sound financial procedures and the law by "investing" school funds in unsound ways, creating a short fall.
2) Staffing levels were not adjusted to compensate for reduced attendance, budgeting has not been a strong point, which will be addressed with state assistance.
The State stepped in to assist Wayne County Schools a few years ago, without invitation, if you will remember. Wayne County did not go under, did it? Monticello has asked the state to assist in bringing the school Back on sound footing, which is now a work in progress.
Please state your evidence on the theft of school property or funds that you base you statement of personal gain on.

Oh and on the topic of attendance lets not forget the "Free" school lunch grant at Wayne County that was incentive to switch for the disadvantaged that attended Monticello.

I see that you have some emotional interest in this matter. How about this: Since you work there, go ahead and give me a single valid reason that anyone should keep that failing school afloat. Not whether it can, but why it should be allowed to. Why does your dinky little county need the bloat and inefficiency of TWO school districts? How is that a proper usage of tax dollars? What child benefits from having multiple districts? How is it not a perfect example of small town class division extended decades beyond its time?

I challenge you to be objective and answer those questions seriously. Justify its continued existence. I don't think there is even the slightest justification, and I'm not the only person smart enough to realize it. Time will tell.

Resident the facts remain. All you have done is give excuses to why certain things happened. Conspiracy theorys and such. Monticello school system is soon to be a thing of the past. No more Trojans. Good riddance.

Good Try, but the question to you was the proof that your silly conclusion about the Monticello School System was based on?
My emotional interest concens your conclusion based on nothing but opinion. Another baseless conclusion on your part.
I do not nor have I ever worked there. Anothe baseless conclusion.
Yes, time will tell, won't it
As it already has with the efficiency of consodlidation in public education. It is no wonder that pivate schools are turning out a better educated individual, less consolidation, more individual and innovative education.

You do not live here. Your county must be even dinkier since you have to run your mouth on Monticello Topix. Don't challenge anyone to answer anything since you refuse to answer any directed to you. You are just a nosy old fart.

grads we have lost the good fight, we have not kept the faith, we have terrible test scores and a audit to prove we suck at math. Give it up.

Besides I have really felt bad about getting caught playing those illegal mexicans in the soccer game a few years back. Got us in some big trouble and we barely escaped the long hand of the KHSAA. Even the best know when a good run has come to a end....

Yes Jerry, we did fall into mediocrity but the fight is not over!
Our scores and level of quality in education is not significantly different than Wayne County's We can be much better now!

A condescending "good try" is not warranted.
I already told you what the basis was. Math. You told me a bunch of things called "excuses" as to why you thought the facts I pointed out existed, which I'm not going to attempt to validate or refute them. So then, the ball is in your court to answer my questions. I'm assuming you're refusing.

No, those weren't opinions of mine. The conclusion was an opinion, the basis was fact and you can check both the enrollment and budget to confirm such.

WHAT?
Wow, you apparently know nothing about anything. The reason private schools produce better educated individuals has zero to do with anything you mentioned. Real reasons:
larger budget/student
removal of lowest common denominator
home environments far more conducive to learning on average
stricter discipline

Private schools are not part of the discussion and are nothing more than an irrelevant tangent. Justify the existence of two school districts in your tiny unpopulated county, or do not. Don't throw up a bunch of extraneous garbage about private schools to cloud the issue.

No, you idiot. Asking me what school I went to is a personal question. There should be no reasonable expectation that one would willingly give out personal information here. I am free to challenge anyone to answer anything I wish. They almost never do anyway.

Then our dinky county is not for you to rag on then is it. You are terrified that you will be exposed and that's the very reason you never post. You are so scared to give up one tiny thing about yourself. Are you in the witness protection program?

Terrified is not the same thing as smart enough to know better. You give up a tiny thing here and there, and pretty soon a person of even remotely high intelligence will be able to find your house. I don't know why you'd doubt that.
