The Harper family made a donation of $73,000 to kiser.(Thank you to the haper family) Last year the assistant teachers were let go and all of the tutors were let go also due to the lack of funding.
Mrs. Shaffer will use the $73,000 to build a NEW computer lab, she said to learn computer skills. How STUPIED is that. If you were to go to Kiser and ask the teachers what do you think Kiser should do with the money? I would bet EVERY teacher there would say please help with a assistant and a tutor. Mrs. Hart was the ONLY assistant the 3rd grade had last year. FOR ALL THIRD GRADE TEACHERS. alot of these kids are struggling and needs tutors not a NEW computer lab. Maybe Mrs. Shaffer should go and help these teachers. I mean what else does she do? This is just CRAZY.

Maybe the donation was made with the stipulation that a computer lab had to be put in with the money. There are quite a few people who do that when they donate a large amount of money.

I may be wrong, but grants like that are not used to pay teachers. Pay comes from the state, and as sad as it may be, they have the say so as to what staff a school has. We all know that the way the school system is treated SUCKS, but what can we do about it besides complain? The biggest problem right now is the economy. Trust me, my kids go to Kiser, and they are having to suffer also due to budget cuts.
