Now that the SEA has taken control of the MSA board members, re-instating all the failed practices of the past, wheels are now set in motion to hire an OSBA facilitator to brainwash the community into agreeing that the "board" should pick up the cost of funding athletics and increase taxes to provide additional parking spaces for the SHS!This thread, 6 years ago

Taking buses away from high school students is simply wrong. Of course we all know the school board and Dr. Baker only do so to impose a hardship on the high school families of the district in order to bribe them to vote for the levy the next time around. Morally it is wrong for the district to say it supports education and then take the buses away. Students who are late to class should not be penalized in any way if the district does this. Maybe they can eliminate the fluff electives and instead fully fund transportation. Does this also mean high school sports will not get buses to events either? That would seem fair. If the students can't use the buses for getting to school than the sports programs should not be allowed to use them either.
Personally I think the community should have input on where cuts are made so it is done reasonably and not as a bribe. This NO to the levy was way over due anyway and I know it was supported by many parents of students in the district.
Personally, I think the community should stay alert and be reminded that when Staff starts talking about what the "Board should fund" that translation into union speak is the only language known by the MSA/SEA team and that for sure is "We Need A Levy For the Kids!"
