well something needs to get figured out i think it would and will be better than the crap we have available......
I graduated from scottsburg and now have one who went thru dist.2 one in middle school and one in kindergarden and scottsburg.
I hope due to the queer running the middle school i will not allow a 3rd to deal with the joke middle school.
So someone needs to get the ball rolling and get something figured out.
Or ill send my 3rd to somewhere else or better yet was my hands of this joke of a county..........
Ms. Nass was the best principal my girls had, besides Mr. Hobbs. You do need to move your brat somewhere else. Preferably Austin. You'd fit in fine up there!!

<quoted text> I a cofused by this post--your suggestion is to vote our school board out for a change but what did they have to do with the charter school? Can a school use temporary trailers after the severe tornado activity in this are? Doesnt seem like a school can be ready to go by August if they haven't started building yet and who is the head of the charter school now?
Brent Comer will still lead the school-he is on a temporary adminstrators contract agreement in another disctrict this year. Once the charter is up and the ground work is done, he step back into that position. This will be great for our community and the parents who want more educational options for thier children.

You might want to check you facts, Mr. Comer is on a 2 year contract with Jennings County. It is not a temporary contract most adminstrators contracts are 2 years.

As much as I don't want to agree with Parent x 2, they might be right. Yes, most admin positions are for 2 years but when he was taking that job, the job posting I believe said it was a one year contract (They had a few positions open, might of looked at it wrong). Rumors were that's why he took it, because next summer he could move back into the Charter position. But rumors are also coming from the future VIA Board that some don't want him back. They don't want all of the baggage he brings from upset parents and other SCSD2 administrations. Also heard he didn't want it back, it was too much stress on him and his family. Either way, I won't be shocked to see him, or not see him prancing around here. Any word on where, for sure, they will be in August to open their doors???

It is obvious that when the word 'queer' is used as slander the writer knows what he/she is talking about educationally. Not.

I have been told that VIA was turned down by the Science Park as well as First Christian Church as places for them to hold school. I have also been told that some of their supporters have left due to realizing the damage a charter school will do to the county.

The principal that hired Comer put his job on the line to hire him. Comer told them he'd stay and that he's finished with charter but others say he's coming back....who knows with all the deceit that charter is wrapped up in.

Unfortunately you can check on line in Indiana charter schools and see that it has been approved. Back when president Obama's stimulus package for education was divided up among the states instead of helping out our public school systems our lovely governor Mith Danials used it to create charter schools. Charter school's teachers are not paid as much as public school teachers. The only thing I see that charter schools are doing is hurting the education system. For all the experienced teachers will be working for the biggest bucks in public schools.

VIA Charter separate school of SCSD2. These are the type of schools Tony Bennett wants in place to dismantle the public school system. The charter will take monies away from the public schools by the kids that attend charter, taxes that would have to be shared with charter, Title One money has to be shared with them, etc.

If charter opens, it will close JES, LES or V-F which will also cost a lot of jobs for our community to be lost.

A charter school can work around the loop holes Tony Bennett has set up to lynch the public schools.

You may want to check your facts on the teacher pay. If you look at their application, a teacher there after 5 years will be making more than what a teacher at SCSD2 makes after 9 years experience. Also, their leader, Kendra Bryant, who, if allowed by her school system, would be double dipping in pay. But even if she does just the Charter school, our tax dollars would be paying her close to $100,000 after 5 years. Pretty good pay for 5 years of "charter school" experience. Plus, to make it even sweeter, they get to PICK THE KIDS THEY WANT IN THEIR SCHOOL, THEY GET TO PICK THEIR SCHOOL BOARD AND MAKE THEIR OWN RULES. SMALL CLASSROOMS AND RICH KIDS, HOW COULD THEY GO WRONG??? AND YOU CAN'T ARGUE THAT, BECAUSE IF THEY SEE A KID THAT'S GOING TO LOWER THEIR TEST SCORES, OR CAUSE PROBLEMS, GUESS WHAT, THAT KID GOES BYE BYE!!!! Something I don't want my tax dollars paying for, that's for damn sure!!!

Why would Mr.Com er tell the truth to his current employer that "he is done with the Charter" when he couldn't tell the truth to his own employer who was providing his paycheck at the time? Of course he will be back, after all the work is done. He knows how to get out of a contract obviously to come back to charter. Who is Kendra Bryant-the interim charter leader?

Charter will also pull resources from the districts special ed. program, probably without paying for it. Grace Christian already enjoys this benefit...and part of the districts Title One money. Who thought up all of this crap anyway?? How is the district suppose to deal with this/? Stupid.

Tony Bennett has recentlty raised $1.3 million fromm businesses that want to jump on the charter school wagon and privatize education. If you don't want all schools to become charter schools in the very near future - DON'T VOTE FOR TONY BENNETT. Seriously,he has horrible ideas for Indiana's kids!
Charter schools can MAKE PROFIT - public schools cannot. This is a Tony Bennett plan!
