just some information to think on . At the last board meeting they had Mike Roberts a very respected person on the school board resigned from it. I take it from the minutes of the school board meeting that he is tired of it being a Charlie Jarrett show. When you have 3 members that control the board and Charlie in the lead then you have problems. It is time the people at Maynard realize that if they don't take care of the school that they will lose it . At this time there is only 2 public schools in the county . The board needs to be made aware that they should quit running it for their own personal agenda. They were elected to do what is best for the students at the school not for their own ideas . So contact those board members and let them know to do what is right .

Maynard is full of constant complaining and if anyone is trying to be a respectful person like Mike Roberts they are out to make it as hard as possible for you. The school board members needs kids in the school and have an idea of laws.

I'm sure Mike had his personal reasons for resigning. It's too bad.

the word needs to get out that there is a problem there. They will have to fill that position. If you know of someone interested have them put their name in with the superintendent at the school . If not then Charlie will get his way and we will lose our school. They have ran it in the ground already . He is the one that had Mrs Bailey there , then we had mr Jackson there. None of them done anything to help the school. Every since he got on the board the school has went down hill . The school can not be run for your own purposes and that is what he has done. They don't follow the rules , they discuss business at the restaurant that should only be discussed at a board meeting in public and I have heard Charlie say many times he don't care let them sue the school . Is that the way you want a board member to act. The residents at maynard elect the board members so if you have kids or family members that go to school there . I would ask why a respected member of town , who has kids that go to the school would leave the board. SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG WE NEED TO ASK THE BOARD DO THEY HAVE THE BEST INTEREST OF THE SCHOOL IN MIND

Actually Maynard and Biggers-Reyno NOT consolidating was bad for both schools. If the powers that be could have both compromised a little back in the late 80's or 90's, they could have gotten state funds to build a brand new school at the edge of the hills and flatlands. Much like what Lake City and Caraway did to form Riverside. As it is, BR lost their school due to forced consolidation and Maynard has an old school in dire need of new buildings, gymnasium and up to date facilities.

From the looks of your grammar, it appears you should have gone not went somewhere else.
