you are 100 percent correct,so called subs.that don't have the proper certification to teach.Maybe the boards attorney needs to read the K.R.S. or the Education Professional Standards Board needs to be e-mail along with Commissioner Holiday,I agree it saves the district money,etc.but on the other hand our certified people have spent or still paying on college loans in order to become professional teachers and as a taxpayer that's who we want teaching our kids.if any parent that has a concern if their teacher has the proper certification you can contact the E.P.S.B. and they will send you a copy of each employee in that school which are board certified thur the state,not by the district..........

As of today Mr. Lester has placed 43 new employees with more positions posted. He knows we are losing more gov. funding in February and is still spending like crazy. He will use all the funds (when Wagner left there was a balance of 8 mil in the district accoutn) he is using this FAST!!! cant afford a raise for teachers, just a measely one time bonus of 500.00 per employee, after taxes, employees may get 280.00 bucks. said cant afford raises. bought 8 new buses, new van and truck for maintenance dept. and so on. ask for a new expedition for himself, board stalled on that one but will be getting soon. Created several new high paying positons at central office. He will break the bank fast, and state will take over. JUST WAIT AND SEE!!!!!!! Then he will decide to retire again and leave a big ole mess.
