Well I can't think of a more incompetent, ignorant, uneducated or more self righteous school board in the history of the United States, so this must mean Britton is doing a good job.

Why is it a violation? It isn't a closed meeting.

You should know that to get an office in this town you have to be corrupt. When an honest person manages to slip in they stick out like a sore thumb if they are using their voice and position to honestly represent the people.

The practice of "ethics" should be a key component in this decision!

Not telling everything that goes on with the school board is what would be the violation for a school board member. Public business has been done in secret around here, Rogersville City and the County, for so long no one even realizes anymore that it's against the law.

She should have been gone years ago. Accounting errors, immoral conduct by teachers, employees, and other abuses. Not to mention that Hawkins County Schools consistently fail when compared to their nearby counterparts.

Yet, the Administration is some of the highest-salaried in the region.

Corruption at it's finest.

She is sitting upon insane amounts of money. Giving every staff member in hawkins county $500 bonuses. And yet she absolutely not to each school having an Sro in every school yo protect our children. The $500 bonuses per staff member would pay that.she sits on the money While surgoinsville elementary school is constantly out of soap and other needs. surgoinsville elementary pricipal is just as bad. She has an agenda made at the first ptso meeting with dates and what will be discussed. You are not at liberty to discuss anything in those meetings. She makes and oversees every fundraiser every date, every topic. She wants the $ amount ptso has paid to provide the fundraiser and she keeps up with the products. She decides solely how the ptso $ will be spent.At the end of each day of a fundraiser she wants to know how much $ has been made. The last time I knew the principal of a school wasn't suppose to run everything to do with a parent teacher student organization. The money is being spent to pave a walking track for her and staff! The only time those kids walk is when they are having to walk laps for punishment. Also it was discussed making an outdoor picnic area for the staff! The children have to pay for even their "reward" functions for good behavior, for popsicles, drinks,snow cones,ect. We are one of the poorest schools. How many kids do you think have money in their pockets and have to watch others that have money? It's completely unfair. The ptso had to purchase rolling carts for our custodians so they didn't have to carry all their items! The principal drives a porsha suv. Really odd Isn't it? Works for the poorest county , doesn't seem to add up. I think things will be looking up though. There are some parents on the board who are going to become very active in the ptso in the year to come.

You already posted most all of this on another thread about an officer in each classroom. Did you think you would get a better response for your pettiness? You whine because you say nothing is done for your child, but when a public servant is dilligent and accounts for every cent you whine about that too? Oh yeah, in the "real world" where people contribute to society, people have to pay for food and drink. Children should be taught that.

Her money doesn't come from being a principal,s1he married into the Trent family.Everyone knows that all of those Trents down Hwy 66 have money.Her father makes a good living also.Stop making accusations when you have not a clue as to what you are talking about.As for what kind of principal she is,I honestly cannot say because my grandchildren do not attend that school,but she does not have to take money from any shady source or anyone! I CAN say that with no doubt.

Ok back to Britton,,, the school board should be asking her to step down,, but the parents should be demanding it!!!!
I agree anytime that an oversite pay taxes cost 150,000 dollars additional fees. That in itself is enough for any director of anything to be fired. What I don't understand is is this: all the newspaper articles that I read sai that there was over 150,000 dollars i n fines, what was th dollar amount of taxes that wasn't paid? Where was this money for the months that it wasn't paid? Why didn't SOMEONE NOTICE THIS MONEY JUST LYING AROUND FOR ALL THOSE MONTHS, if it was just an ovesight? Where did the money for these fines come from, articles in papers say that the more than 150,000 dollars was the amont of fines I didn't See the amount that wasn't paid in ne paper...have these taxes been paid? How was it so easy to come up with balanced budget after paying this enormous amount of fines? Call the school board and see what they have to say...see if your call gets lost or acidenntly hung up on or no call returned ....just try it ppl.......see what the reponse is call brittons office....listen intently to her answers if you can catch her out and about just listen to smoke that she tries to blow up your @#* WHAT THE HELL IS GOING UP THERE, Bold faced liars.....call and ask tese questions let em know ur watching their activities call the school boars members and ask them see what they say..........don't leave these things to someone else......REMEMBER: TO SOMEONE ELSE YOU ARE SOMEONE ELSE!!!!!!
