All BOCES certificate programs should reinstated.

I'm still wondering how the boe is proudly proclaiming that no cuts are being made to educational programs when the BOCES program has been butchered.

It's tragic that they sincerely think they're doing a great job for the kids of WI and feel the town owes them a debt of gratitude.

Tried to put the following suggestion on the Patch, but they would not 'approve' for print.

The money SHOULD GO to the reserve funds that have been depleated the past few years. However knowing our spend every dime you find (business as usual) BOE it will probably go to buying E-READERS or an indoor arena for lacrosse. That is after a bit is skimmed off the top to increase the adminstrative salaries and benifits this summer.

Keep both Kirdahy and Westbrook open. The student don't fit in the 4 schools anyway and we all know that we won't be saving the anything close to the 3 million promised. So why mess with our children's education and move everyone around since both schools will probably be needed in 3 years anyway. Save on salaries and benefits NOT on our children.

Great idea! Have it be the lie detectors that give off an electric shock when the person tells a lie and then see how packed the audience is at every BOE meeting! Bring your fire extinguishers!!! LOL
