Is this a prelude to yet another school tax hike?

I have no doubt that the program is needed, but the schoolboard and county need to trim other programs before even thinking about another tax hike.

That program was started, put in the schools by the Pike County Health Department. They got the funding to put the nurses in the schools. If the Pike County Health Department Board don't raise the taxes to fund it why put the job on the PCBOE. Maybe because the Health Dept Hired LN's instead of RN's and ended up with a bunch of unqualified nurses. Let the Health Department straighten this out not hand the tax over to the PCBOE yes men that pass all taxes even if this is not a PCBOE program. It is a Health Department Program, if their board does not raise your taxes to fund it that may be be because it is not worth it. Why should the PCBOE tax for a program the health dept put in the schools and now want the school district to fund..we never had a school nurs for years, it is nice to have them but under the Health Department and not under the political culture of the school board. It is a health issue, placed in the schools and managed by the Health Department, a Health Department Program, let them fund it. The PCBOE can't take on another expensive not educational program, they are broke and so are the Pike County tax payers..

A Health Department Problem, let them fix it and fund it.

The PCBOE Goard members have been getting a bad reputation for going in and raising taxes for everything the BOE ask for. This is not a PCBOE program and the program is run in the schools by the Health Department, they put it there and they funded it. Nice to have but Frank R and the new board members won't vote to raise the school taxes to fund it. If the program has any merit the Health Department has a Board of Directors let them vote to raise our taxes...I think some people are trying to show some PCBOE Board members in a bad light, make them vote no on a needed program without the people knowing this is a Health Department Program.
