How about all the fuel wasted by county bus drivers? Even in the summer, weekends, and lots of other times when buses aren't needed at all you find them at Walmart. Most of the time if you watch the drivers they bring their groceries and load them on the buses.

It should be the Pike County Board of Enrichment.The political machine enriches itself at the expense of the students and the Pike County Tax Payers. You are hired by who you know not what you know and political loyalty is held in higher regard that subject matter knowledge. A long history of patronage and family control of the board.

Not a real good managment system when the money gets tight, layoffs are unavoidable. The thing is the best and the brightest will get cut off and the inept and political crony will keep their job. The very same people that have the Board running a deep deficit.

If I were you I would follow them and see where they are going. You know you can make a citizens arrest. Barney Fife did all the time.......LOL.

Schools do have activities that go on in the summer and weekends. And sometimes when they have a field, for example at Gattilandm, some of the buses do park at Walmart because of the parking situation. And sometimes they stop there to meet parents and etc. Think before you open your mouth, that way you might not be perceived as being stupid.

They tell. Common people their 100 days when in fact they work 170 days at $280 a day do the math. They say they are saving money all those people already have what they call a retirement. Why not let these young kinds that are just getting started have a chance. It really is time for a change.. Here are some of the names pat Burke, they wanted her out put that right back in, gene Tackett never shoes up, marinet little, never shows up, Glenda Tackett, loud mouth never shuts up or shows up.. Just those 4 equals over $240,000. And they are saving money come on people. If you hired new blood it would equal maybe $120,000 less than half come people stand up

Operating funds have been drying up since the 08 crash, the state has been cutting back about 8% for the last 4 years. They did not cut K-12 until this year when funding will be less on account of the new funding formula. Every other agency in the state has been cutting operating cost to survive in the new fiscal environment "except for the PCBOE" the two million deficit the paper printed is more like a 3-3 1/2 million. Time to trim the fat and the dead wood in administration, cut the political appointments and most of the 100 day wonder gang. The last cuts should be the people that actually deliver the services to the kids. I can't see laying off teachers until the administrative waste and dead wood is cut. The administration is corrupt, fat with waste and top heavy with people that are not needed and are only political appointments. Of course waste and saving should be looked for in every department but they should start at the board for some real and quick savings.

Anyone else see on WYMT news at 6 tonight about the Pike County School System being "OVER 2 MILLION OVER BUDGET"? Said The State May Take It Over. I have an answer to their problem, Don't TAKE FROM THE SCHOOLS WITH CUTS that will just take from THE CHILDREN. Just let me go to THE BIG HOUSE for a ONE HOUR WALK THROUGH and when I PUT THE WASTE ON THE ROAD, PROBLEM SOLVED. It Is THAT SIMPLE. More people sitting & shooting the bull or in the back room doing something other than working. Thats a fact! LOOK OUT BACK at the HIGH DOLLAR SUV's, & I can go & on. This is sickening! The dam state cant run the state let alone the Pike Co Board of Education, thats another story, no another PROBLEM.
30 years of graft and incompetence finally caught up with the PCBOE!

Let's all take a stand against the corrupt PIKE CO BOARD OF ED. Let's vote out the board members and hire a new superintendent. I heard he was hiring more 100 day wonders bringing them in from all parts of the state. If the good people of PIKE CO only knew what was really going on. Let's take a stand for the children.

With every other state agency being cut and having to cut their budgets to survive the PCBOE should have known the cuts would come at some point. The thing is the PCBOE was already running a deficit before the funding formula was changed. Now they will run in with their automatic tax increase on the citizens of Pike County trying to make up for the cuts from the Federal and State.
The people in Pike County are hurting from this recession and the slump in the coal market, this is not the time to make up for State Department cuts in funding on the backs of people that are barely making it as it is.
The board was going in once and sometime twice a year raising our taxes in good times when the money was flowing. What do you think they will do to us now. Frank Ratliff was the only member to vote no on new taxes until the waste and graft was cut. Now they are working 24/7 to get rid of Frank on account of that vote. They new guy Maynard is against raising taxes also until some of the waste is cut, that will make two if he gets in. We need to get the word to all our board members, no new automatic taxes on us until the waste, especially the waste in administration is cut. Vote the ones out that are going in and raising our taxes on us to fund that rich and famous lifestyle for the political hacks down at the board.
